Coming Together in Common Prayer: The 500th Anniversary of the Reformation
It's been 500 years since the Reformation. Bishop Crosby and Bishop Pryse of the Eastern Synod Evangelical Lutheran Church of Canada have come together for prayer services to commemorate this anniversary. On Saturday, October 21st St. Peter's Lutheran Church hosted a joint Lutheran- Roman Catholic prayer service.
Below is video of the homily from both Bishop Crosby and Bishop Pryse.
Within the Hamilton area, you are invited to join Bishop Crosby in common prayer with Bishop Pryse and local Lutheran congregations. This common prayer is observed on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Together we seek the unity, peace and healing that God desires for the Christian Church. Although that time in the history of the Church is remembered for division, discord and bitterness, the Spirit of God is calling us in our time to a renewed sense of common mission, prayer and service. All are welcome to join on Friday, November 10th at 7:00pm in the Cathedral Basilica of Christ the King, Hamilton.
All Priests are also welcome and encouraged to participate in this commemoration.
