Msgr McPartlan at Catholic-Orthodox Dialogue Meeting in Greece
From 5-9 September 2017, Msgr Paul McPartlan took part in a meeting of the Coordinating Committee of the Joint International Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church on the island of Leros, Greece. Following the agreed statement on synodality and primacy in the first millennium agreed by the full commission at Chieti in Fall 2016, the meeting agreed that the dialogue should now proceed with the preparation of two documents: one assessing the achievements of the dialogue so far and determining the work remaining to be done, entitled Towards Unity in Faith: Theological and Canonical Issues, and the other on Primacy and Synodality in the Second Millennium and Today
