Since 1981, the Catholic Association of Diocesan Ecumenical and Interreligious Officers and the Bishops’ Committee for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs have sponsored three-year cycle of leadership training opportunities, beginning with this Introductory Institute for Ecumenical Leadership. Aware of the rapidly changing dimensions of ecumenical work, Ecumenical Officers and others involved in the work of Christian unity need ongoing training to include the latest and most significant developments affecting their work.
