Ecumenical institutions and organizations--Graymoor Ecumenical and Interreligious Institute

Continuing a series of posts calling attention to selected resources featured in Appendix 1, "Resources for Ecumenical Engagement," in Ecumenism Means You, Too: Ordinary Christians and the Quest for Christian Unity (Cascade Books, 2010):

As a ministry of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement, the mission of the Graymoor Ecumenical and Interreligious Institute is to promote Christian unity and interreligious dialogue in North America. It seeks to fulfill this mission by engaging in study and research in the ecumenical and interreligious movements through writing, workshops, and participation in dialogues between and among the churches as well as with different faith communities at the local and national level; by offering personal expertise on ecumenical and interreligious matters, making staff available upon request for lectures and short courses, and offering information to news media and researchers; publication of the journal Ecumenical Trends and publication and distribution of resource materials for the annual observance of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity; and by co-sponsorship of the biennial Northeast Ecumenical Institute at Graymoor and faculty participation in an annual summer course which introduces students to ecumenical and interreligious movements at the Centro Pro Unione in Rome.
