    Full communion is a communion or relationship of full agreement among different Christian denominations that share certain essential principles of Christian theology.

  1. intercommunion

    Intercommunion is the practice of sharing the Eucharist, also known as Holy Communion, between members of different Christian denominations. It embodies the mutual recognition of sacraments and ministries. Its observance varies and depends on agreements between denominations, and it sometimes involves doctrinal, theological, and jurisdictional complexities, often relating to the understanding of the Church. However, in many cases, it is generally restricted due to differences in understanding and belief about the Eucharist.
