20th Anniversary of Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification

Join us for a celebration service for the 20th anniversary of the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification on Friday 08 November. The service will be at First Lutheran, 116 Bond Street, Toronto.

Refreshments will be served at 5pm and the service will start at 6pm.

The Lutheran World Federation and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity have jointly prepared a liturgy to mark the 20th anniversary of the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification (JDDJ). The LWF and Catholic Church signed the JDDJ on 31 October 1999, (Reformation Day) in Augsburg, Germany.

Participants will include churches from the Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, Anglican and Reformed traditions, which have affirmed the ecumenical agreement.
