In line with the observance of the Year of Ecumenism, Interreligious Dialogue, and Indigenous Peoples, the local Church will intensify its dialogue with the different sectors of society.
“The Church continues to hold dialogue with other Christian denominations (ecumenism) and other religions. We also hold dialogue with other sectors of society,” said Fr. Carlos Reyes, former executive secretary of the Catholic Bishops ‘Conference of the Philippines -Episcopal Commission on Interreligious Dialogue over Church -run Radio Veritas.
Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, earlier, cited the important role played by dialogue in pushing for peace and unity amid differences.
