Mission

The mission of the Office for Ecumenical & Interreligious Affairs is two-fold.

Ecumenically, the office seeks to promote greater unity in the Christian Church, particularly through shared prayer, theological dialogue, and common witness between Catholics and Christians of other denominations.

Interreligiously, the office seeks to promote greater mutual understanding between Catholics and believers of other faith traditions outside Christianity. In all its endeavors, the work of this office is conducted working closely with the Archbishop.
