Lutheran-Catholic relations explored at St. Scholastica

The current state of relations between the Lutheran and Catholic faiths will be discussed by an internationally known scholar, in a free presentation at St. Scholastica.

Monsignor John A. Radano will discuss discuss "Lutheran and Catholic Relations 500 Years After the Reformation: Where Are We Now?" at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, in the Mitchell Auditorium. The event is open to the public.

The event is sponsored by St. Scholastica's Braegelman Program in Catholic Studies.

Father Radano is an expert ecumenist, and from 1984 to 2008 served in the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. Pope John Paul II appointed him as head of that Pontifical Council's Western Section. He participated there in a number of the Catholic Church's international bilateral dialogues with other world Christian communions, including those with Lutherans, Reformed, Baptists, Mennonites, Classical Pentecostals and Evangelicals.
