A new official, bilingual website:

Dear Brother,

The International Franciscan Center for Dialogue of the Order of Friars Minor Conventual (CEFID), headquartered in Assisi, has the pleasure of announcing the inauguration of a new official, bilingual website.

The new site will give all friars and those interested in ecumenical and interreligious dialogue the possibility of keeping up with the latest developments.  The site will allow for exchanging ideas and launching of new ventures, offering advice on the best practices, and sharing the initiatives undertaken in each province/custody of the Order. It is hoped that dialogue with other Christian denominations and other religions may become a reality for all the friars of the Order.

The launching of the website-which is dedicated specifically to ecumenical and religious dialogue of the Conventual Franciscan Friars-is a small, concrete step toward truly making dialogue an “essential component of the mission of the Order.”  One of the goals of the Order is to encourage this kind of initiative in order to involve more friars.

Those who want more information on the ecumenical ministry may write to the following web address: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

We hope to be able to provide useful and timely information to visitors of the website and invite you to visit:  Any suggestions you may have to improve the site will be greatly appreciated.

With best wishes for peace and all good things from Assisi.
