The mission of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Savannah to all the people of South Georgia includes a mission to and with the other Christian churches, ecclesial communities, and those who worship in non-Christian religions.

Ecumenically, we seek to build on the unity already existing among Christians because of our common heritage in "the apostolic teaching, communal life, the breaking of the bread, and prayer." (Acts 1:44-46) The Diocese is pledged to foster and promote dialogue, study, and collaboration among Christian communities.

Interreligiously, we seek to come to a more faithful common understanding with those who worship in traditions other than Christian. We acknowledge the ancient traditions in which a growing number of those who live and work in our area worship, and we pledge ourselves to better understanding and mutual respect.
