Lutheran bishop to talk at Lourdes University


Lourdes University’s theological studies department and the Sisters of St. Francis will welcome a Lutheran bishop at the Roman Catholic school’s Franciscan Center at 3 p.m. Sunday for the 2013 Lourdes University Ecumenical Lecture.

Bishop Marcus Carl Lohrmann of the Northwest Ohio Synod will present “Full Communion Relationships: An Ecumenical Way Forward.” His free lecture will address the foundation, challenges, and gifts of full communion relationships that the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has with the Episcopal Church, the Moravian Church, the Presbyterian Church USA, the Reformed Church in America, the United Church of Christ, and the United Methodist Church.
