N: The Monastery of Bose and the Community there living is essentially a monastic community of monks living the Gospel to its ultimate exigencies in celibacy and common life. Born at the very end of the Vatican II by an idea of Enzo Bianchi (in Bose), it receives men and women of every confession, celebrating the liturgy together, studying the Holy Scripture, working and welcoming people, praying and helping each other. The Community has now spread to Jerusalem, Assisi, Ostin, Europe, and it hosts, since the very beginning, people from every Christian confession.
The Monastery has an area for camping, simply but comfortably equipped.
The Monastery organizes international meetings, in cooperation with other ecumenical Centers or Churches (Patriarchate of Moscow, WCC, Catholic Church, Disciples of Christ, Patriarchate of Constantinople), and exchange visits with eminent representatives of Churches.

A: Ecumenical: 7 sponsoring Churches. It is a national organization.
 
N: The Center is involved in many aspects of ecumenism (interchurch relations), but the primary focus of its work and mission might best be understood within the broad context of what ecumenists call "reception", which means to make the fruit of the high-level theological agreements and accords known and "owned" by "ordinary" people in a way which influences their day-to-day lives and relationships. Its primary work and focus can thus be understood in terms of facilitating reception, among clergy certainly, and among the broader membership of the churches they serve. The Center accomplishes this through prayer and sharing of spiritual riches, education and formation, dialogue. Person-to-person contact remains the most important dimension of its work and mission. The Center is governed by ecumenical Board of Directors, including among others national representatives of 7 Canadian Churches officially named by the Heads of those Churches.
The Center has limited space for hosting lectures and meetings.
