Save the Date: Lutheran-Catholic Covenant Study Day

All are invited to a milestone Lutheran-Catholic Study Day on September 22, 2024, hosted at St. Joan of Arc Parish in Streetsboro, Ohio, and sponsored by the Lutheran-Catholic Covenant Commission of the Catholic Diocese of Youngstown and the Northeastern Ohio Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. This year’s study day will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification, which was officially recognized in 1999 by the Vatican and member churches of the Lutheran World Federation, and will anticipate the 25th Anniversary of our local Lutheran-Catholic Covenant to be celebrated next year. Participants will learn not only about the history of the Joint Declaration, but also what has been achieved since that time and where the Spirit might be leading us for the future of our Lutheran-Catholic relationships.

The day will begin at 2pm and conclude at 6:30pm. It will include reflections from Bishop David Bonnar, Bishop Laura Barbins, and Dr. Joy Schroeder of Trinity Lutheran Seminary, as well as Evening Prayer and dinner. This will be a great event for both individuals and for parish groups. Pre-registration will be required, and a suggested donation appreciated. Online pre-registration will begin August 1, but for more information and to join our mailing list, please contact Justin Huyck, on behalf of the Lutheran-Catholic Covenant Commission, at justin@faithshape.org.
