One Easter for Western and Eastern Churches

In 2017, the Eastern and Western churches will celebrate Easter on the same date. A happy coincidence that can make the life of families and parishes easier and that confirms the recent developments in the international and local ecumenical movement.

Christians living in the Holy Land belong to different Churches: they are Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant and of other denominations. These ecclesial communities have a wealth of history, tradition and spirituality that sometimes unites them and distinguishes them [from one another].

Quite often families are composed of members belonging to different churches, and so, the nuclear family becomes an opportunity to come together and foster dialogue between these communities.
