Every year the Ecumenism Committee, formed of Trustees and Faculty Representatives, meets in February or March, under the leadership of Fr. John Ford of CUA.
Its tasks are to make recommendations to the Board of Trustees. The Committee recommends recipients for the Ecumenism Award and events for the Annual Tachmindji Event. This work takes an hour or two.
Afterwards the Committee joins faculty who teach ecumenism or interreligious dialogue for dinner and conversation. This is an annual event with no speeches. This year 14 of us gathered at America in Union Station. I offered all a thank you for their dedication and service.
They have been a great group to work with–dedicated to humble service.
