Ecumenical Service in Tunis

Bishop Bill Musk joined an Ecumenical service at the Greek Orthodox Church of St George in Tunis for Pentecost earlier this year. The service was conducted by  His Beatitude Theodoros II, Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa, and was also attended by the President of the Republic of Tunisia, His Excellence Moncef Marzouki, ambassadors, the Apostolic Nuncio with the Catholic Archbishop of Tunis, and other ecumenical friends.

One thought on “Ecumenical Service in Tunis

  1. Dear Sir,

    I am a London based freelance journalist, and am writing an article for Catholic weekly, The Tablet, about the changing situation for Christians in Tunisia, focusing especially on what has happened since the Revolution.

    Current events in the Middle East have provided a sombre back-drop to Christian/Muslim relations and readers of The Tablet are keenly interested in the fate of Christians in the Muslim World. Tunisia is of particular interest because of the small, but encouraging signs of more tolerance of Christianity since the Revolution, and especially since the new constitution of 2014, which, I understand, no longer cites the Sharia as the source of legislation.

    On the 4th October I shall be visiting Tunis and I would be extremely grateful if I could meet with the Bishop to talk about these matters.

    I look forward to hearing from you,

    Yours sincerely,

    Peter Newsham
