The emerging Ecumenical category of Mutual Accountability – aiming at deepening the mutual knowledge and reliability between denominations – is the inspiration for a Centro Pro Unione formation project. The project MAD for Ecumenism establishes a Mutual Accountability Desk and is directed to all Christian confessions willing to cooperate in such inter-denominational joint venture and formation initiative.

sets micro-goals revolving around study, charity actions, worship, which are carried out in the format of modules.
Each module develops according to three modalities: dislocation, sharing, spreading.
- Dislocation: partners are free to work on the project by organizing their own timing, modalities and organizational details;
- Sharing: at some stage there will be 2/3 plenary meetings where results, reflections and perspectives are put in common;
- Spreading: means that at the end of the experience there will be an (official outcome) publication indicating the people involved in the group and the conclusions drawn, to constitute some growing archive.
The project is carried out both in Italian and English.
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.
