The Oldest Ecumenical Walk In Europe

Canon Ulla Monberg writes from Copenhagen in Denmark about their recent annual Ecumenical Walk for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

“More than 800 hundred people walked together through the city visiting and worshipping at  churches of different denominations as a sign of Christian unity. The walk began in St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and included visits to the Methodist Church, the Russian Orthodox Cathedral, the Roman Catholic Cathedral, St. Alban’s Anglican Church (where we held two shortened versions of traditional Evensong) and the Swedish Church where a joint act of worship concluded the evening.”

The Ecumenical Walk for Christian Unity was started by the Fellowship of St. Alban and St. Sergius and this 61st consecutive annual walk in Copenhagen is believed to be the oldest of its kind in Europe.”
