The Diocese of Des Moines

The Second Vatican Council prayerfully and prophetically considered the words of Jesus, "that they may all be one," and calls Roman Catholic lay, consecrated, and clergy to reach out from the Church and to strengthen the fundamental commonalities held by people of faith and all people of good will. 


Foundational to that call is the document Nostra Aetate, the Church's "Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions." It has set a new course in the way Roman Catholics approach relations with other Christians and those of other faiths.
