Strengthening relationships with churches in the Middle East
On 21 January 2017 Stuart McMillan met with His Holiness Aram I of the Armenian Catholicosate of Cilicia.
The President and His Holiness discussed matters concerning the church and the Christian presence in the Middle East.
His Holiness has a great commitment to ecumenism and inter-faith dialogue, being active in the World Council of Churches (WWC) since 1975. He has achieved much with his work in the Armenian Catholicosate of Cilicia, establishing a special department for ecumenical and inter-religious relations.
It is not surprising that the discussions ended with Catholicas Aram I and Stuart McMillan agreeing to work on firming up the relations between the Middle East Council of Churches and its Australian equivalent, the National Council of Churches in Australia.
