Saskatoon Diocesan Commission for Ecumenism

Mandate of the Commission

The role of the Ecumenical Officer and the Commission for Ecumenism is outlined in the Directory for the Application of Principles and Norms on Ecumenism.

The Saskatoon Diocesan Commission for Ecumenism undertakes to be guided by: the leadership of the bishop of Saskatoon and the terms of reference of the Commission; the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops and its directives for ecumenism; and documents of the Church, especially the Decree on Ecumenism and the Declaration on the Relationship of the Church to Non-Christian Religions.

In the practice of the Catholic Church's commitment to ecumenism in the Diocese of Saskatoon, the SDCE further undertakes:

  • to recognize that many ecumenical relationships have been developed over the years,
  • to realize that the focus of the SDCE is with Catholics of the diocese of Saskatoon,
  • to become aware and supportive of other ecumenical and interfaith activities,
  • to encourage ecumenically active individuals to be more "intentional" about their participation; to see it as part of the ecumenical movement..
