The Conference of European Churches (CEC) organised a training for its Member Churches in Italy, addressing security and safety risks, threats, and challenges in the country. The training was held on 24 June in Rome, as part of the Safer and Stronger Communities in Europe (SASCE) project, carried out by CEC, and funded by the Internal Police Fund of the European Commission.

CEC General Secretary Dr Jørgen Skov Sørensen has expressed deep sorrow on the passing of Metropolitan Gennadios of Sassima. “Several of us have memories of His Eminence’s time on the Central Committee of the Conference of European Churches, as well as the planning Committee of the Third European Ecumenical Assembly in 2007, and his leadership for the Churches in Dialogue Commission,” said Sørensen in his condolence letter to the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

“We will remember His Eminence’s commitment to ecumenical dialogue, Christian unity and Orthodox witness in the diverse ecclesial landscape in Europe and beyond,” he added.

Metropolitan Gennadios of Sassima passed away last week. He served as a member of the CEC Central Committee from 2003 to 2013. A professor of Orthodox theology and canon law in various universities, he served in many ecumenical positions.
