Discussion at St. Hilary on Wednesday

Please Plan to Attend!

On Oct. 18 we will join with long-time neighbor and ecumenical partner St. Hilary Catholic Church to observe the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, and celebrate the positive steps that have been taken in the past 50 years toward unity.

This event will be held at St. Hilary:
