St. Thomas University to Hold Conference on ‘Conflict to Communion’ to commemorate Reformation

The University of St. Thomas will hold a “Conflict to Communion” conference on Saturday, Oct. 7, at 9 a.m. in McNeely Hall to commemorate the fifth centennial of the beginning of the Reformation.

The conference will feature presentations from Dr. Dirk Lange, professor at Luther Seminary, and Dr. Christian Washburn, professor at Saint Paul Seminary, both members of the International Lutheran-Roman Catholic Commission on Unity. A panel discussion will feature The Most Rev. Archbishop Bernard Hebda of Saint Paul and Minneapolis and The Rev. Bishop Patricia Lull of the Saint Paul Area Synod, ELCA.

The commemoration of the Reformation is not a celebration of the unfortunate events that led to division at the time, but a solemn commemoration of those events from the experience of reconciliation that has brought us from conflict to communion
