With the 500th anniversary of the Reformation coming this October, there will be an event including prayer, singing, dialogue, and discussion following a presentation by Rev. Kevin Laughery, Ecumenical & Interreligious Officer for the Diocese of Springfield and Rev. Chris Repp, Ecumenical Officer for the Central-Southern Illinois Synod – ELCA on Luther’s relationship with Christ and the Roman Church.

 

This event is the kick-off for a series of "table conversation" ongoing dialogue opportunities that will also involve a service component to allow Christians to work together.

 

We hope to have a large gathering of Christians for an event in October to demonstrate a growing sense of unity and understanding all through the person of Jesus Christ and by virtue of our common baptism.

 

Project 501 is a group of local Catholic and Lutheran clergy and laity dedicated to furthering the work done by the Lutheran World Federation and Pope Francis. Its hope is to move beyond commemoration to ongoing dialogue and continuing action.

 

This event is free and open to the public. RSVPs are appreciated.
