Vatican officials meet with counterparts from World Council of Churches

January 21, 2015

Vatican officials met with representatives of the World Council of Churches (WCC) on January 20, for an exchange of information on plans for the coming year.

The Pontifical Council for Inter-Religious Dialogue hosted the delegation from the WCC. A brief Vatican statement released after the meeting said that it was an “opportunity to reflect on future partnerships between the two institutions, which have collaborated for some years now, in order to exchange information and with a view to joint initiatives for the examination of various issues.”

As an example of this collaboration, the Vatican statement referred to a document released four years ago. The Vatican is not a member of the World Council of Churches.
