Pope Francis to visit the WCC

The Papal Ecumenical Pilgrimage to the World Council of Churches will take place in Geneva on 21 June 2018.

The visit to the WCC by Pope Francis is a significant milestone in ecumenical relations. At the time of the Papal visit the Ecumenical Centre in Geneva will be filled with representatives from many member Churches and ecumenical partners. It will be a wonderful witness of Christian unity for the world to see, a hope-filled call for all to work in unity with the HOLY SPIRIT, with the theme Walking, praying and working together.

Read the La Civilita Cattolica interview with the Rev Dr Martin Robra on the visit of Pope Francis.
