Exploring ARCIC II

Looking towards a Church fully reconciled

50 years of ARCIC
The Anglican – Roman Catholic International Commission was established by Archbishop of Canterbury Michael Ramsey and Pope Paul VI in 1967. After the final report of ARCIC I in 1981, a further five agreed statements have been issued by ARCIC II. These are accompanied by commentaries in its final report, which was presented to Pope Francis and Archbishop Welby in October 2016.

On 31 May 2017 the University of Divinity will host a series of events, presented in collaboration by the Australian Anglican-Roman Catholic Conversation (AustARC), Catholic Theological College, Trinity College Theological School and Yarra Theological Union, to review and explore the work of ARCIC over the last
50 years.
