Ecumenism is Alive and Well in Leamington

To mark the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, the Catholic Women’s League and the Lutheran Ladies of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church met the afternoon of June 19 at St. Michael’s Church in Leamington. After a short prayer service focusing on the Christian commitment to love, the C.W.L. ladies explained that since Luther’s emblem is a white rose, they would plant a white rose bush to mark the occasion. Also, the Lutheran Ladies were offered a blue hydrangea to plant on their property to honour Mary, the Mother of Jesus. The photo shows Monica Weil on the left and Mary Lapos, co-president of the C.W.L. on the right, committing to overseeing the planting of the perennials at the respective churches.
