The Church of Phoenix is called to participate in the quest for unity by promoting ecumenical and inter-religious relations as mandated by Vatican II and recent Church teachings. This applies to all members of the Church. Since Vatican II the Church has urged the faithful to seek unity with her separated Christian brothers and sisters and to acknowledge and respect the truth found in all religions. It is, therefore, essential that each parish, as a part of its mission, seek ways to further unity with all Christians and non-Christians of good will.
