Building Interfaith Dialogue
Posted: 14 Jan 2009

On 23 October, Chorbishop John D. Faris attended the 75th meeting of the North American Orthodox-Catholic Theological Consultation in Montreal. Delegates discussed the issue of papal primacy.

From 16 to 23 November, Chorbishop Faris participated in the second plenary meeting of the Joint Working Group of the Roman Catholic Church and the World Council of Churches in Geneva.

The group focused on developing a mandate, which members agreed should include addressing the impact of migration on churches of all denominations around the world and involving youth in the ecumenical movement.

Chorbishop Faris is currently serving a six-year term as a member of the group, which strengthens ties between the Catholic Church and the World Council of Churches and advances Christian unity.
