Journées d’Arras 2022 in Rome / Italy (hopefully)
The Journées d’Arras take place every year since 1980, normally in the week after Pentecost. They bring together a group of Christians from all over Europe, working eith Christian-Muslim affairs in their churches, dialog or study centres. The Journées d’Arras have been ecumenical from the start, reflecting the situation in Europe today, with the churches working in partnership.
After the meeting in 2016 in the Netherlands, the conference took place 2017 in Hanover/Germany organized by the Protestant Church in Germany including a one-day-trip to Wittenberg. In 2018, it was held in Pradines/France, in 2019 in Marielund near Stockholm, Sweden. The annual meetings in 2020 and 2021 had to be organized online hoping that 2022 the meeting can take place in Rome/Italy in person.
