Ecumenical Prayer Service to mark the 20th Anniversary of the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification
An ecumenical prayer service in the Cathedral St Pierre in Geneva will mark the 20th anniversary of the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification.
The landmark agreement was the result of over three decades of ecumenical dialogue between the Lutheran World Federation and the Roman Catholic Church. Originally signed by Catholic and Lutheran leaders in 1999, it has since been broadened to include the World Methodist Council, the Anglican Communion and the World Communion of Reformed Churches.
Representatives of the five global Christian communions that have affirmed the JDDJ will participate in the service, praying together for unity and for common witness in the world.
