“New Birth • Living Hope” Joint Catholic / Lutheran “That They May Be One” Worship
7:00 p.m. • Tuesday 14 November 2017
St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Parish, 7112 South 12th Street, Tacoma WA 98465
In recognition of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Catholic priests, Lutheran pastors, and lay leaders of Pierce County parishes and congregations have been meeting monthly for common study, prayer, and the importance of unity in life together. After six months of mutual conversation and prayer, these leaders decided to “plan a gathering around the Reformation anniversary.” The vision was a “joint Lutheran/Catholic worship for as many in our communities as we can gather.”
These leaders continue to meet on a monthly basis, exploring where Lutherans and Catholics differ theologically, the places where we agree and the things we share in common, and the areas where we can grow together in order that we may be one. The “New Birth • Living Hope” worship service allows the lay people of the same parishes and congregations to similarly gather together to worship the Lord God as one people.
Therefore, you are invited and encouraged to come and worship alongside your fellow Catholic and Lutheran brothers and sisters in Christ from parishes and congregations throughout Pierce County. Join us as we affirm our baptisms, sing together, pray with and for one another, hear the Word of God from both Lutheran and Catholic clergy, and worship in the name of Jesus Christ.
