Anglican-Roman Catholic Dialogue

The Episcopal Church has been in dialogue with the Roman Catholic Church for more than 40 years through the Anglican-Roman Catholic Dialogue in the USA (ARC-USA), and on the international level through the Anglican Communion Office in the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Consultations (ARCIC). In a common declaration signed in 2006 by Rowan Williams, then Archbishop of Canterbury, and Pope Benedict XVI, the two leaders renewed the historic commitment to the goal of “full visible communion in the truth of Christ.”

ARC-USA continues its discussions through its current round of dialogue on the topic of reconciliation.
