Consecration of the EU and its institutions to the Lord Jesus
We are happy, as members of the prayer groups meeting within the institutions of the European Union, to invite you – and all those who have the European Union at heart – to join us for a trilingual (French/English/Deutsch) ecumenical celebration during which the European Union and its institutions will be consecrated to the Lord Jesus.
Consecrating the European Union and its institutions, that’s a novel idea!
