Bishop Brian Farrell

"I speak for all of us in the WCC fellowship and staff in expressing our deep gratitude for your dedication and our work together,” wrote Pillay. In those 21 years, you have witnessed several seasons of ecumenical relations.”

Pillay highlighted accomplishments and collaborative work areas with the dicastery, particularly the annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity and the Joint Working Group between the Roman Catholic Church and the WCC. 

We are so grateful for your contributions to this enhanced ecumenical relationship,” wrote Pillay. Beyond these substantial contributions, Bishop Farrell, we are most appreciative for the genial and generous friendship and fellowship in Christ that you have shown all of us WCC members, staff, and students through the years.”
