Prayer Service

for the 20th anniversary of the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification

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.

Lutheran and Catholic churches are invited to use the liturgy in the context of Reformation Day. They are encouraged to include churches from the Methodist, Anglican and Reformed traditions, which have affirmed the ecumenical agreement.

The liturgy includes prayers, suggested hymns and Bible readings, and excerpts from the JDDJ and other related documents.
