Everyone is Invited to the Historic Interdenominational Commemoration September 21st

Don’t miss the Historic Interdenominational Commemoration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation and the joy of coming together to mend fences.  All are welcome to gather at St. Patrick.’s Church on Walford Road, 7:00-9:00 pm, on Thursday, September 21st. A Freewill Offering will be taken to provide a scholarship for an Indigenous student.  There will also be a Reception following the Service.  It's an amazing moment for the North that kids and adults will see each other working on reconciliation. We are hoping the future can be much kinder than the past.  This Commemoration will include aspects of respect and acknowledgement of the Indigenous peoples of Canada.

9 denominations will take part (Catholic, Lutheran, Anglican, Presbyterian, Methodist, Baptist, Mennonite, Pentecostal and United Church of Canada); as well, 3 Bishop leaders of Catholic, Lutheran and Anglican churches will be present to help lead the service.

Although Sudbury has had other types of ecumenical prayer time over the last few years this particular one is "EXTRA" special. Its format is based upon the Oct. 31, 2016 service in Sweden led by Pope Francis and the Lutheran Bishop, head of the Lutheran World Federation, to open a year of COMMEMORATION of the 1517 start of the "Protestant" Reformation. It commemorates the wonderful progress made in the last 50 years of breaking down barriers and walls of division among many Christians around the world.
