The Ecumenical Institute at Château de Bossey.


When asked on the day of her graduation how she would describe Bossey, former student Quantisha Mason replied, ’Bossey is like a love letter to God.’ Now, the Ecumenical Institute invites prospective students to apply for the study year of 2021-2022.

The Institute, sitting on the banks of Lake Geneva in the Swiss countryside, is looking forward to a new study year that was originally intended to be connected with the WCC’s 11th Assembly in Karlsruhe, first planned to take place in 2021 but which has now been postponed until 2022.

”Nonetheless, as testified by students past and present, studies at the Ecumenical Institute is an opportunity no young ecumenist would want to miss,” reflects Fr Prof. Dr Lawrence Iwuamadi, academic dean at the Ecumenical Institute, speaking from the position of someone who has seen many generations of Bossey students experience what the Institute has to offer.

The deadline for applications is 30 November 2020.

Coming to Bossey is ‘hard,’ say students, but they leave in ‘a family’ knowing ‘Christian unity can be lived’ (WCC press release of 25 March 2020)
