                                                      Tantur Cross Of Nails April 24th 2018 Fr

On April 24th, 2018, Tantur Ecumenical Institute was fully received into the Community of the Cross of Nails during a simple but moving service officiated by Rev'd. Canon Dr. Sarah Hills of the Reconciliation Ministry of Coventry Cathedral. Tantur Rector Rev. Russ McDougall, C.S.C. received the symbolic Cross of Nails on behalf of the Institute, and thanked the Coventry Reconciliation Ministry delegation for traveling from Coventry Cathedral to Jerusalem for the express purpose of the presentation of the cross. Founded in the post-war era as a spiritual renewal alongside the physical reconstruction of the historic Anglican Cathedral of Coventry which had been entirely destroyed during the Second World War, the Community of the Cross of Nails is now a worldwide network of Christian churches, institutions and ministries that share a common call towards reconciliation between peoples, communities and nations.  Tantur's relationship with the Community of the Cross of Nails extends to many generations of leadership, staff and friends of both Tantur and Coventry, and will continue in the years to come.  For more information on the Community of the Cross of Nails, please visit
