An exploratory, interdisciplinary Colloquium, held in Rome from the 5th to the 6th May,
1996, which gathered a distinguished group of experts from around the world, laid the groundwork
of the project and recommended its establishment.
Its aim is to promote research and pastoral action in order to foster in God's people a way
of life penetrated and shaped by the Eucharist.
It endeavours to bring together those engaged in research and renewal in disciplines
related to the Eucharist, especially liturgy, theology, and spirituality.
The work of the Center is carried out in a collaborative, interdisciplinary and ecumenical
(as well as inter-religious) spirit, taking account of the riches of cultural diversity
characteristic of the contemporary world.
The Center does not wish to enter into competition with existing bodies or double what is
already being done. Rather, it seeks to promote collaboration and exchange, especially by
bringing competent persons together for conversation and debate.
Use is to be made of Colloquia and other forms of exchange of views/approaches etc., and,
according to its means, the Center will undertake a variety of projects, including the fostering
of research and, on occasion, the publication of scientific studies and pastoral instruments.
