Report of the Meeting of Primates of the Anglican Communion: Appendix IV

Statement of Anglican Primates on the International Anglican-Roman Catholic Commission on Unity and Mission (IARCCUM)

We, the Primates of the Anglican Communion, meeting in Canterbury from 10-17 April 2002, welcome the statement Communion in Mission and the accompanying action plan resulting from the international meeting of Roman Catholic and Anglican bishops in May 2000 in Mississauga, Canada. We are grateful for the initiative of the Archbishop of Canterbury and Cardinal Edward Cassidy which was instrumental in bringing about this milestone in Anglican-Roman Catholic relations.

We also welcome the establishment of the International Anglican-Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission which will oversee the preparation of a Common Statement and which will take other steps to further growth towards unity in mission.

We encourage our Provinces and Churches to give their support to this new stage on the journey to full visible unity between the Roman Catholic Church and the Anglican Communion.
