Ecumenical and Interreligious

The Office of Ecumenical and Interreligious Relations supports ecumenical and interreligious engagement throughout The Episcopal Church, promoting understanding among all God’s people and unity among the churches. We do this through supporting the advocacy commitments of this church; ecumenical dialogues; and providing resources.

We do this work through our full-communion partners, such as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America; ecumenical dialogue partners, such as the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.); and conciliar bodies, such as the World Council of Churches. We are committed to engaging interreligious relations ecumenically and do so with member organizations like the National Council of Churches, as well as with multifaith coalitions like the Shoulder-to-Shoulder Campaign and Religions for Peace USA. We also support the Episcopal Diocesan Ecumenical and Interreligious Officers Network.

Our website features stories meant to amplify ecumenical and interreligious voices from around the world. Browse these stories and access resources that feature media, historical documents, quick-fact one-pagers, as well as other materials which can help you, your parish, diocese, and community engage ecumenical and interreligious work locally and globally.

We believe this work is about unity in diversity and building bridges. We seek flourishing and abundance for all, and so ecumenical and interreligious work is also anti-racist work, creation care work, and it is committed to the liberation of all God’s people.
