Our Saviour’s Church in Chippewa Falls is holding study and discussion sessions of the reformation to commemorate it’s 499th year.
The Vatican Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity and the Lutheran World Federation issued a Common Prayer Service that contained a 90-page study document.
The document titled “From Conflict to Communion” reviews Catholic and Lutheran history over the last 500 years.
Since the issue, a group of twelve members of churches, half Catholic and half Lutheran, from Eau Claire, Altoona and Chippewa Falls have been preparing the Common Prayer Service for churches in the Chippewa Valley.
The Common Prayer service along with a combined choir of 200 or more participants, will take place at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29 at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 1712 Highland Ave. in Eau Claire.
Prior to the prayer service, there will be continued study and discussions of the reformation. The sessions will include information of the reformation and how it is is significant to Lutherans, Catholics and other Christians.
The next free session will be held from 7 to 8:15 p.m. Wednesday, May 3 at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, 1300 mansfield St. in Chippewa Falls.
