Ecumenism 101

A letter from the Ecumenical Education and Nurture Program Secretary:

Dear Ecumenical Friends,

Grace and Peace!

The National Council of Churches in the Philippines will be holding its annual Summer Internship Program (SIP). The SIP is an intensive immersion program of experiential ecumenical learning of the NCCP. It links seminarians of NCCP-related theological formation institutions with community-based development-oriented programs. It seeks to provide venues for theological action-reflection, expression of ecumenical commitment and sharpening of mission perspectives. 

SIP is a program originally intended for seminarians. The program consists of three phases: 

First phase: general orientation, and inputs
Second phase: Immersion from April 16-May 10
Third phase: Processing of experiences

We would like to announce that we are opening to the public the First Phase of the program which will be composed of different inputs that can be a learning experience also for ecumenical networks other than the seminarians. This will be held on April 13-15, 2011 at the Conference Room A of The Bishop La Verne D. Mercado Ecumenical Center, NCCP.

The first phase will be made up of inputs on: History of Philippine Ecumenical Movement, An Overview on Ecumenical Theologies, The Context of our Ministry (input on National Situation and workshop on Church and Society, Input/Workshop on Doing Biblico-Theological Reflection, and Input/Workshop on Community Organizing.

There will be a registration fee of Php 1,000.00 to cover the cost of food for three days. 

We would like to invite you or members of your organization to attend this three day live out seminar and have a meaningful Ecumenical Education experience.

Should you have any queries, you may call 926-9760 and look for Marge or Cheekai.

Attached is the seminar flyer.

Thank you and God bless,

Ms. Darlene Marquez-Caramanzana
Program Secretary
Program Unit on Ecumenical Education and Nurture
