20 Years of Together for Europe
October 31, 2019: the 20th anniversary of the first meeting between Evangelical and Catholic Communities and Movements which was held in Ottmaring (this is considered as the beginning of Together for Europe)
TOGETHER FOR EUROPE…
…brings together Christian Movements and Communities – over 300 in number spread across the Continent – belonging to different Churches. While preserving their independence, collectively they form a network to pursue shared goals, each bringing a contribution specific to their own charism.
A reality rooted in strong shared experiences; Movements and Communities – just as different from each other as European cultures, languages and regions – establish relationships of communion and fellowship in which full respect of mutual diversity is maintained.
Together for Europe wants to respond to a need for a “culture of reciprocity” in which individuals and peoples welcome and get to know each other and reconcile differences with mutual respect and support..
