The most recent Lutheran-Catholic dialogue took place in April 2013 in Washington D.C. Find a report on the topic, presentations and attendance posted here.
In 2010, the Lutheran-Catholic Dialogue completed a common statement entitled "The Hope of Eternal Life" which explored in depth the common belief of Catholics and Lutherans in Jesus Christ's promise of eternal life. This statement was an important milestone in its ecumenical work. The dialogue currently meets twice a year with Bishop Lee Piché and Rev. Lowell Almen serving as co-chairs.
The Lutheran-Catholic Dialogue in the United States first met in 1965 under the leadership of Auxiliary Bishop T. Austin Murphy of Baltimore and Rev. George F. Harkins of New York, president of the National Lutheran Council. The dialogue over the years has discussed issues ranging from the Nicene Creed and the sacraments to papal primacy.
