From Fr. Michael Bechard, Chair of the Diocesan Ecumenical Commission: This year, we rejoice in the opportunity to pray with the Christians of Germany. They have chosen as their theme “Reconciliation – The Love of Christ Compels Us,” inspired by 2 Corinthians 5:14-20. They invite Christians around the world to celebrate God’s reconciling grace, call us to recognize the pain of the deep divisions which afflict the Church, and urge us to become ambassadors of Christ’s message of reconciliation. In this year when we commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, the healing of the Church is of utmost importance. King’s University College will be hosting this gathering of prayer at The Chapel at Windermere on The Mount (1486 Richmond St.) on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at 7:30.  Their choir will lead the assembly in song and they have invited the ministerial team from North Park Community Church to break-open the Word of God.  Refreshments will follow in the Parish Hall.
