500th anniversary of Reformation is focus of Marian University lecture on Sept. 17

This year marks the 500th anniversary of the start of the Protestant Reformation.

In conjunction with this important time in Church history, the theology-philosophy department of Marian University in Indianapolis is sponsoring a presentation at 4 p.m. on Sept. 17. It will take place in Evans Center Lecture Hall 1 (Room 150).

During the event, Bishop William O. Gafkjen, leader of the Indiana-Kentucky Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, will speak on “The Meaning and Enduring Significance of the Reformation.”

Bishop Gafkjen said he is looking forward to reflecting on the Reformation at a Catholic university because the synod he leads is “focusing our … attention on moving from conflict to communion as part of the ongoing legacy of the Reformation.”

The lecture is free and open to the public.
