In memoriam P. Jan Lenssen
The Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity has given, on their website, the following testimony of our confrere Jan Lenssen, who passed away a few weeks ago. Jan has indeed spent a lot of energy on Ecumenism.
“It is with sadness that the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity has learned of the death of Reverend Father Jan Lessen, M.Afr., who for many years represented the Council at the Commission on World Mission and Evangelism of the World Council of Churches. Throughout his fruitful missionary ministry, Father Lenssen was an untiring worker in the field of Christian unity.
Cardinal Kurt Koch, President of the Dicastery, sent a letter of condolences to Reverend Father Stanley Lubungo, Superior General of the Missionaries of Africa.”
