The annual LARC (Lutheran-Anglican-Roman Catholic) Ecumenical Retreat will be on-line this year. Our theme for 2020 is “Ecumenism in Times of Crisis”. In our history, through times of war and economic depression, our churches have found creative ways to work together. Our time presents us with a fresh opportunity. Our retreat-by-webinar will be Tuesday October 13, from 12:00 noon to 2:30 pm (Eastern). Our leader is the The Rev. Dr. Thomas Ferguson. Tom was formerly the Ecumenical Officer for the Episcopal Church, and served as Dean of Bexley-Seabury Seminary. He is now the Rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Sandwich Massachusetts. There is no fee to participate, but advance registration will be requested to provide the appropriate links.
