About the Christian Unity Commission

The Christian Unity Commission for the Archdiocese of Southwark has been in existence for over forty years.  Our main task is to encourage Catholics within the Archdiocese to work and pray for Christian unity. Click here to see the Commission’s constitution.

The members of the Commission are:

Rt Rev Paul Hendricks (President)
Robin Orton (Chair)
Gwen Chiosso (Secretary)
Deacon Michael Baldry
Deacon Jolyon Vickers
Sr Beatrice Garnett
Marie Bullard
Alessia Cesana
Theresa Fox (Treasurer)
Jenny O’Neill

We arrange regular events at which speakers, either Catholics or from other Christian traditions, are invited to lead discussions about church unity issues. Catholics from the parishes and anyone else who is interested are encouraged to attend.

We also arrange visits to other denominations’ churches or other places of ecumenical significance. This gives us the opportunity to learn more about the different Christian traditions and to pray together for unity.
