About us

The Ecumenical & Interfaith Commission (EIC) welcomes our parishioners, our Covenant communities and people of all faiths who are interested in learning more about the ecumenical and interfaith activities of St. Louise parish in particular, and of the Catholic Church in general.

One of our goals is to become a resource for St. Louise parishioners and our Christian community in Bellevue who wish to learn more about what we are doing to fulfill the spirit of Vatican II and the specific directives of the papal ecumenical encyclical, "Ut Unum Sint" (That They May Be One, promulgated May 25, 1995), which enjoins Catholics to work toward Christian unity.

We hope to be a tool for promoting healing, harmony and understanding between all Christians and our Jewish brothers and sisters, recognizing that "the true revelation of the Hebrew Bible which Christians revere as God's Word was given to the Church through the Jewish people and that as Christians we affirm that our own faith in God began in the call of Abraham, Moses and the Jewish prophets."*

We are dedicated to the betterment of interfaith relations with our Muslim bretheren, celebrating our unity as decendents of Abraham and worship of the one true God.

We also hope to invite followers of other world religions, and all people of good will, to recognize the sincerity and openness of our Catholic tradition, so that they might experience unity with us where possible, as well as mutual understanding and trust, even where differences may divide us.
