That We May Be One

October 29, 2017 @ 3:00 PM - 5:15 PM

The East Central Synod of Wisconsin and the Diocese of Green Bay will be joining together to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation!

Join us on Sunday, October 29th at 3:00 p.m. for a prayer service, with Bishop Gerald Mansholt and Bishop David Ricken, preaching. Following worship, there will be an hour-long workshop entitled, “Ecumenical Marriages: A Mirror of Lutheran – Catholic Sharing”.

As the Lutheran- Catholic document “From Conflict to Communion” has so powerfully observed, there have been a number of key things in our modern world that have led to the need for greater dialog and cooperation between Lutherans and Catholics. One of those key things is the reality of ecumenical marriages between Catholics and Lutherans. Few things illustrate the potential for greater unity among Christians than ecumenical marriages. With this in mind, this workshop will consist of a panel discussion led by two Catholic-Lutheran ecumenical couples, Mary Ann and Jeff Otto, and Maria and Tom Nelson.

The workshop will focus on the lived out reality of these couples, who in their marriages, daily live out the Christian unity that we are working toward by the grace of the Holy Spirit. Everyone is invited to this workshop as we glean from those in ecumenical marriages how to live into greater Christian unity.
