Ecumenical Celebration
October 29, 2017

On October 29, over 300 people gathered in Albuquerque for an ecumenical service commemorating the 500th anniversary of the reformation.  The service was planned and sponsored by leaders from the  New Mexico Conference of Churches and included presiders from Catholic, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Methodist, Disciples of Christ, United Church of Christ, Episcopalian, and Community of Christ churches.  The service included prayers seeking forgiveness for the way protestants and Catholics treated each other in the past, and commitments to finding ways to serve God together in the future.
