US Anglican-Catholic dialogue meets, discusses morality

Catholic World News - September 20, 2010

The Anglican-Roman Catholic Theological Consultation in the United States met recently to discuss “Ecclesiology and Moral Discernment: Common Ground and Divergences.” Participants worked on a draft of a common statement on moral issues.

“While the two churches share the same convictions on a wide range of ethical questions, there are serious differences regarding certain issues in personal morality, especially those pertaining to human sexuality,” the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops acknowledged in a September 17 press release.

The meeting, which took place in Alexandria (Louisiana) from September 9 to 10, was the 68th since the consultation was established in 1965.
