PESCHKEN reports

Subscribe 263 Pope Francis’ visit of the WCC , World Council of Churches, 70th anniversary. This meeting also marked 50 years of cooperation between the World Council of Churches and the Roman Catholic Church in the quest for Christian unity.

The theme of the visit was: “Walking, Praying and Working Together”, and it started with a prayer service at the Ecumenical Centre chapel.

I met with H.E. Archbishop Thomas E. Gullickson, Apostolic Nuncio to Switzerland and Liechtenstein (located in Bern) asking him why it took 14 years between the last Papal Visit and this one.
