    Interchurch Marriages

    Friends:

    As some of you know, I have been involved for 2 decades with Catholic Engaged Encounter.
    CEE is a movement in the church that provides weekends for Engaged Couples.
    Often these couples are interchurch–that is, from two different Christian tradiions.
    In this instance one of the parties is Catholic.

    Two years ago, the CEE community in our region invited me to give a workshop on the Spirituality of Interchurch couples. I was happy to do so. About 60 of the presenting couples attended the workshop, which I gave twice.

    I shared the text of this presentation with Father Tom Ryan.
    He asked if he could include it in his ecumenical e-newsletter, Koinonia.

    The article just appeared.
    It is entittle “Reaching Out to Interchurch Couple: Finding a Common Spirituality”

    If you think it might be helpful to you, it can be accessed at:

    Peace,
    John
