This is an Agreed Statement of the International Anglican-Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission. Discussions have been taking place between Roman Catholics and Anglicans over the past 40 years. Since 2000 Bishops from both churches have established a new body 'o promote our relationship by seeking to translate our manifest agreement in faith into common life and mission.'This is quite different from the theological discussions among experts, known as ARCIC. This statement is intended to foster discussion and reflection; it is also a call to action, based upon 'an honest appraisal of what has been achieved in our dialogue.' The International Anglican-Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission (IARCCUM) was established in 2001, and its work since then has been to implement a mission plan to carry into effect a closer unity based on the agreements made by the ARCIC discussions about doctrine.
