With the Italian governmental guidelines for a gradual re-opening of the country, assemblies, congresses, etc. are now permitted with some restrictions but only beginning in July. We discussed ways we could organize the course reducing it by a week and we came to the conclusion that this would not work because credits given by an academic institution based on the number of hours actually taught would not be met by the reduction of one week. In addition the participants want to come to Rome/Italy!
We, therefore, decided with heavy hearts, that we will have to cancel the course this year, so that in the future we can offer to the participants the full academic dimension as well as the cultural/religious one.
Thank you for your continued interest and we hope that you wil join us in 2022.

of the project is focused on Baptism in its moral and liturgical implications: “[…] by Baptism […] we walk in newness of life” (Rom 6:4) and it will last from November 2019 to March 2020. Module 2 will include some ecumenical celebrations focused on our common Baptism in various churches of different Christian traditions, to meet the Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, Waldensians and Baptist Communities (primarily though not exclusively) and to experience mutual accountability; a concluding lecture with a sharing of the journey done together will be scheduled in springtime.
— in addition to the Centro Pro Unione who will coordinate the project (Prof. Teresa Francesca Rossi is creator and responsible of the project) — are Local Communities of various Christian traditions in Rome, Ecumenical Centres, Universities, Seminaries, Parishes as well as Public High schools in Rome.
