Kick-Off Event for the 500th Anniversary

All Day Event

A synod-wide kick off event for the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation



On October 31, 2016, the Lutheran World Federation and the Catholic Church are hosting a joint ecumenical commemoration of the Reformation. Pope Francis, LWF President Bishop Dr. Munib A. Younan and LWF General Secretary Rev. Dr. Martin Junge will lead the common prayer service in Lund, Sweden and the public symposium that follows in Malmö, Sweden.


We are joining with the Catholic Archdiocese of New York to offer an opportunity to not only watch the livestreamed events in Sweden, but to worship together using the Common Prayer liturgy developed for this occasion.
