The Diocesan Ecumenical and Inter-religious Commission promotes within the Diocese of Raleigh the goals of the Roman Catholic Church in its pursuit of Christian unity, as well as understanding and cooperation between peoples of non-Christian faith traditions. The Commission accomplishes these goals through prayer, dialogue and community related activities.
