Greetings, NAAE Members,
Many of us were in Allentown, PA for this year’s annual conference, which was graciously hosted by Rev. Dr. Christine Nelson and the staff of the Lehigh County Conference of Churches. An impressive group of scholars gave papers which stimulated our conversation on the theme “We Belong to One Another”, as we drew on the Porto Alegre 2006 statement, Called to be the One Church, which calls Christians and their churches to acknowledge their mutual responsibility to one another.
Membership in the Academy includes:
- Ecumenical fellowship
- Engagement with leading ecumenists
- A forum for dialgoue and engagement
- Journal of Ecumenical Studies
- Occasional newsletters
- Student Essay Contest

Called Together: Identity, Accountability, Hospitality
September 23-25, 2011
The Academy is grateful to the Lehigh County Conference of Churches for hosting the conference.
The conference will consider ways in which ecclesial identity, mutual accountability, and hospitality find shape and give sustenance to efforts for unity among the separate churches.
Memberships and renewals are now due in order to receive the full subscription of the Journal of Ecumenical Studies in 2011, which will include papers from the 2010 Annual Conference in Montreal.
Margaret O’Gara, Professor of Theology at the University of St. Michael’s College, entered the realm of eternal life on Thursday, August 16, at age 65, after suffering from cancer for two years.
The characteristic aim of Margaret’s 37 years of work as a theologian was to foster dialogue among Christians for the sake of overcoming divisions between the churches. Besides her teaching, research, writing, and extensive public lecturing, she was a member of official ecumenical dialogues in Canada, the United States, and at the international level. She also served as president of the North American Academy of Ecumenists and the Catholic Theological Society of America.
