Logo 500e ReformationThe Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) jointly released in December 2016 resources to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation throughout the year 2017. The resources are entitled Together in Christ -- Lutherans and Catholics Commemorating the Reformation. The process of developing these resources has itself involved an ecumenical dialogue and a deepening of relations between the two Churches in Canada. Over the course of two years, a joint CCCB-ELCIC working group prepared the materials which are intended to encourage the faithful in reflecting prayerfully on the past 500 years; in offering thanksgiving to God for the progress made in the efforts toward reconciliation; and in praying for pardon and peace whenever words or actions have fallen short of what Christ demands of Christians.
