28 OCT, 2020. In this sixth article in the eight-part series on the St Louis School’s Handbook of Education, we look at how we can live Sint Unum through Ecumenism and Interreligious Dialogue. Sint Unum, ‘may they be one’, was the heartfelt prayer of Jesus at the Last Supper for his disciples and followers (Jn. 17:21.). That prayer was the basis of the Turkenstein Pact of 1797, and through Louis Bautain, became the foundation of the community life and mission of the Sisters of St Louis. After the Second Vatican Council, the sisters embraced Sint Unum as their charism; then gradually undertook involvement in ecumenism and interreligious activity as a way of fostering Sint Unum in the world.
