Anglican-Roman Catholic: new stories to tell
In over fifty years of formal ecumenical dialogue, Anglicans and Roman Catholics have come a long way in terms of the agreement in faith that exists between our two churches.
Anglicans and Roman Catholics have come a long way in working through many of the divisive points that have separated them since the 16th Century. New Stories to Tell: Living Ecumenism Today is a project of the Anglican – Roman Catholic Dialogue of Canada, which illustrates these strides that have been made. It is a document consisting of 17 stories that demonstrate a growth of mutual understanding and re-establishment of bonds of love and common cause between Anglicans and Roman Catholics.
“This resource is an opportunity to see ecumenism at work in the lives of Anglicans and Roman Catholics in Canada. The theological work of national (Anglican Roman Catholic Dialogue – ARC Canada) and international dialogues (Anglican Roman Catholic International Commission -ARCIC) is finding new expression in the local initiatives expressed in these stories. We hope they will inspire further conversations and witness to the degree of unity we can already share,” states Bishop Linda Nicholls, Anglican Co-Chair of the Anglican Roman Catholic Dialogue of Canada.
