Under the direction of the Director of the Interfaith Commission, presentations and other opportunities help to educate the faithful in the ecumenical directives and theology of the Catholic Church.
The Catholic Church has a rich relationship with other Christian Churches (ecumenical) and other religions (interfaith). This posture began with the Second Vatican Council in 1965. The Catholic Church professes its belief in Jesus Christ, as Lord and Savior; but also realizes that faith is something a person must freely embrace and that many human beings have already embraced a faith in which they find meaning for their lives. God has made all of us and is in dialogue with every human being to bring them to awareness of his Divine presence and invite them to share eternity. Catholics are to witness to the message of the Gospel and invite others share in it, while as Catholics, they appreciate the spiritual heritage, rituals, and moral directives found in other religions.
The following activities are regularly sponsored by the Interfaith Office of the Diocese of Cleveland and all our welcome to participate in them.
