500 years later, Lutherans and Catholics to talk about split

To mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church is sponsoring “From Conflict to Communion: Lutheran and Catholic Perspectives” from 9:30 to 11:15 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 25.

The event seeks to inform Catholics, Lutherans, other Protestants and people of other faith traditions about significant steps that have taken place in the last 50 years to build bridges of understanding and healing between the two confessions. It will be followed in coming weeks by a series of discussions at Our Saviour’s, 1234 N. Arlington Heights Road, and at St. James Catholic Church, 831 N. Arlington Heights Road, Arlington Heights.
