Joint Service to Commemorate 500th Anniversary of the Reformation

SPRINGFIELD — The public is invited to a Catholic-Lutheran Prayer Service to be held Sunday, Nov. 19 at 5 p.m. at St. Agnes Church, 245 N. Amos Ave., Springfield. This is to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation, and to recognize the ecumenical dialogue of the past 50 years, which brings Lutherans and Catholics closer together than in years past.

Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois and Bishop S. John Roth of the Central/Southern Illinois Synod, Evangelical Lutheran Church of America will preside. The service will include prayer, hymns and music in the Taizé tradition.

The Catholic-Lutheran Prayer Service is hosted by Project 501+ Lutheran-Catholic Dialogue
