This year marks the 60th anniversary of October 11th, 1962, the day on which Pope St. John XXIII solemnly opened the Second Vatican Council. One of the key goals of the Council was the re-establishment of visible unity among Christians. This webinar will look back at Vatican II’s vision for ecumenism and examine it in light of the Church’s experience over the past six decades.
