The main goals of the OEC dialogue group are:

  • Exploring theological and cultural similarities and differences between the¬†Orthodox and the Eastern Catholic churches.
  • Exploring the history of the schism and relationship after the schism between these churches.
  • Exploring political situation in the territories and lands in which these churches are located as well as the affects of the schism on this situation.
  • Situating an encounter and dialogue between members of these churches.
  • Preparing an official dialogue between these churches that should take part in form of the official bilateral commission (only to be initiated by the churches leaderships).
