JWG met in Warsaw, Poland

The Executive Committee of the Joint Working Group (JWG) between the World Council of Churches and the Roman Catholic Church met in Warsaw, Poland, from 6 to 8 May 2019 under the leadership of His Eminence Metropolitan Nifon, Archbishop of Târgoviște (Romanian Orthodox Church) and His Excellency Diarmuid Martin, Catholic Archbishop of Dublin and Primate of Ireland.

The Executive prepared the agenda of the forthcoming Plenary of the JWG in September 2019 in Lyon, France. “The group also evaluated the progress of its work during the current mandate, especially regarding study documents on Peace Building in Situations of Violence, and on Migrants and Refugees as an Ecumenical Challenge and Opportunity,” the communique reads. The next WCC Assembly, scheduled for September 2021 in Karlsruhe, Germany, will mark the end of the current Joint Working Group mandate.
