Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Interchurch Families International Network.

(Feature article can be found below.)
 

This site provides rich resources for the journey to Chrtistian unity which interchurch families live. Of these, the Journal, produced over a period of more than 10 years, and reflecting the experiences of interchurch families and the theology which undergirds their journey, must be counted among the most valuable.

The Interchurch Families International Discussion Group enables us to share joys and sorrows, to discuss ways of dealing with immediate issues which arise as a consequence of living our marital unity within churches which are divided.  Feel free to join.

Enjoy and, if you have comments or questions, please contact me, Ray Temmerman, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

   

Fr. George Kilcourse, Professor of Theology at Bellarmine College in Louisville and the founder of the American Association of Interchurch Families (AAIF) in 1990, commented on Fr. Orsy's presentation. 'He has contributed new insight and perspective to the dilemma faced weekly by authentically interchurch families,' said Fr. Kilcourse. 'Fr. Orsy is a distinguished canonist and theologian who invites all of us in the Catholic Church--interchurch families, bishops, ecumenists, canon lawyers, and pastoral ministers--to recognize how we can responsibly progress toward the full communion to which the Second Vatican Council committed us. This insight opens new doors. We begin to see interchurch families as not merely a problem but also as a gift - as Fr. Orsy so aptly named them, "a grace offered for the healing of the churches."'
