On the Path towards Christian Unity  is a 14-part video series that explores the broad topic of ecumenism in the Catholic Church. Guided by the landmark documents of the Second Vatican Council, On the Path toward Christian Unity, covers both foundational concepts and pastoral applications for the lay person, religious, priest, beginner or veteran, practitioner or student of the ecumenical movement. The series also comes with a group and study guide to help facilitate conversation and reflection. The 14 talks are offered by a variety of individuals with distinct expertise in the area of ecumenism.

The first talk, The Importance of Friendship, is presented by Bishop Denis J. Madden, chairman of the Committee for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs. Other talks are given by USCCB staff members and participants and collaborators of the many ecumenical dialogues in which the USCCB is engaged. CADEIO, of course, is highlighted in the series both by the video you are featured in, as well as being mentioned in the video explaining ecumenical entities (Alphabet Soup).

The entire series is now housed on the SEIA webpage and can be accessed by following this link:  http://www.usccb.org/beliefs-and-teachings/ecumenical-and-interreligious/on-the-path-toward-christian-unity.cfm.   The videos will also be uploaded shortly onto the USCCB YouTube page at https://www.youtube.com/user/usccb/videos.

Our hope is that you and your colleagues will find this initiative helpful in your own ministry within the Church.  Please feel free to make use of this resource in whatever manner would be of benefit to your programs and collaborators.  We also appreciate any help you could offer in promoting the series among your members and contacts.
