US ecumenical group celebrates 10th anniversary
February 24, 2016
Christian Churches Together, a US-based ecumenical organization, recently concluded its tenth anniversary convocation.
Participants gathered in Arlington, Virginia, to discuss poverty, race, evangelization, and immigration.
The organization embraces five ecclesial “families”: Catholic, evangelical/Pentecostal, historic black, Orthodox, and historic Protestant. Within the organization, Bishop Mitchell Rozanski of Springfield, Massachusetts, serves as the leading Catholic representative.
“To look upon the issues of racism, global poverty, immigration and the plight of our fellow Christians who are being persecuted with the eyes of faith gives us great hope that, despite so many obstacles, we can unite in addressing these issues through Christ Jesus,” said Bishop Rozanski.
