Ecumenical and Interreligious Outreach
Promoting Christian Unity

“That they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you.” (John 17:21)

Prayer of Unity

Dear Lord,Unite the Churches of Christ that have been splintered over the centuries for each year that passes the wedges grow deeper and deeper. As our faith grows, we must see not what separates us, but what joins us. Only then can we once again become true patrons of the faith. Through your word and divine mercy, we shall become united again. Amen.

What it means to be ecumenical friends:
These are some of the things that reflect what that means: To pray regularly for the unity of the Church; to be rooted in a particular Christian tradition; to take an active part in the careful and honest appraisal of whatever needs to be done for the renewal of one’s own church; to be fascinated and curious about that which is different; to be willing to learn; to cultivate an historical consciousness; to be ready to celebrate vitality in the Body of Christ wherever it is found; to be willing to work together; to feel the scandal of our divisions; to be open to God’s will for the Church; to appreciate the important role of provisional regulations and church structures in our evolution from alienation to reconciliation; to have an appreciation for the hierarchy of truths in Christian doctrine; to try to understand others as they understand themselves; to be alert to the presence of God and the action of the Holy Spirit in the lives of other Christians and members of other living faiths; to have a biblical patience.
