Christian Unity

Bishop-William-Kenney

The Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity has appointed Bishop William Kenney as the Co-President of the Catholic Delegation on the International Commission for Dialogue with the Lutheran World Federation. His counterpart in the Lutheran delegation is the former Bishop of Helsinki, Bishop Emeritus Eero Huovinen of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland.
 
The commission was officially established for dialogue on a worldwide scale by the Lutheran World Federation and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity in 1967, and the Lutheran-Roman Catholic dialogue has aimed at full, visible unity of the churches.
 
Dialogue has been held in various stages, the first (1967-1971) concentrated on the Gospel and the Church, the Eucharist and Church ministry was the following topic (1973-1984), and the focus from 1986-1993 was the Church and Justification.
 
The Lutheran-Roman Catholic Joint Commission for Unity finished its fourth and last phase of dialogue in 2006 with a report on “The Apostolicity of the Church”. The report has been published this month with the title “From Conflict to Communion. Lutheran Catholic Common Commemoration of the Reformation in 2017”.
 
Bishop Kenney and Bishop Huovinen have collaborated fruitfully in Nordic dialogue commissions in the past. The next phase of dialogue will consider “Baptism and growing Church Communion” and will take place in Kyoto, Japan from 12-18th August 2013.

In 1988 Bishop Kenney was awarded an honorary doctorate of Philosophy at the University of Gothenburg for his work in internationalising studies at the university and for his work among immigrant students. Besides his duties in the diocese he lectures extensively both in Sweden and abroad on social issues and on ecumenism and inter-religious dialogue.
