ROME, MAY 27, 2005 ( The Conference of European Churches and the Council of European Bishops’ Conferences announced a competition to design a logo for the 3rd European Ecumenical Assembly.

Known as the EEA3, the title of the assembly is «The Light of Christ Shines upon All: Hope for Renewal and Unity in Europe.»

The winner will receive a prize of 1,000 euros and free participation in the event. The winning logo will be used to publicize the assembly throughout Europe and will be on display in Sibiu, Romania, during the final event.

The first assembly was held in 1989 in Basel, Switzerland, on the topic «Peace with Justice,» and the second was held in 1997 in Graz, Austria, on «Reconciliation: Gift of God and Source of New Life.»

The third assembly will take place in four stages. Stage one will gather 110 delegates for meetings to be held Jan. 24-27, 2006, in Rome.

Stage two will consist of national and regional meetings to be held in late 2006 or early 2007.

Stage three will gather the 110 delegates again in Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany, in January 2007.

The peak event will take place Sept. 4-8, 2007, in Sibiu, Romania, and will gather some 3,000 representatives of the bishops’ conference and European churches, as well as link meetings in various cities in the continent.

In a statement, the organizing committee said the assembly seeks to «tackle the great challenges set out by the European culture marked by secularization and by a need for spirituality, by religious pluralism, by the process of European unification, and by the responsibilities of our continent in the context of the world as a whole.»
