Reformation Study Day
What was the Reformation and why does it matter five hundred years later?
This year sees the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and the Nottingham Diocese RC Ecumenical Commission have organised a study day to co-incide with this which will take place on Saturday 13th May 2017 from 10am to 3.30pm at Holy Trinity Community Centre, Boundary Road, Newark, NG24 4AU.
We will explore the reactions and consequences of the Reformation and the main speaker will be Rev. Dr. David Cornick, General Secretary of Churches Together in England, who will look at what happened in the sixteenth century so that we can understand the legacy of division and difference between Protestants and Catholics, and the ways in which we can learn together to share in what Pope Francis calls ecumenism in prayer, ecumenism on our journey and the ecumenism of blood.
Rev. Canon John O'Toole, National RC Ecumenical Officer for England and Wales will be reflecting on the Reformation in the light of his personal ecumenical journey before and after Vatican II.
