The joint Catholic-Lutheran Commemoration of the Reformation in Lund and Malmö, Sweden, on 31 October 2016 marked a very important ecumenical moment. As a sign of continuous commitment with the one ecumenical movement the Lund Cross created for the Joint Commemoration will be placed in the chapel of the Ecumenical Centre. The cross will be dedicated during a service on the first day of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity on 18 January.

The Catholic Church will be represented by H.E. Kurt Cardinal Koch, the LWF by Rev. Dr Martin Junge and the WCC by Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit. Cardinal Koch and Rev. Dr Kaisamari Hintikka will preach together.


The service was live streamed on Facebook.

Coffee and refreshments will be offered following the service.
