Ecumenical Services Planned


The Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown will host one of two annual ecumenical services this year in partnership with our brothers and sisters in the Lutheran and Orthodox faith traditions. Each year, two services are held to pray for Christian unity. This year, local Lutheran leaders will host the first gathering on February 9 at 3:00 p.m. at Grace Lutheran Church in State College. The second service will be held on February 16 at 2:00 p.m. at Saint John Gualbert Cathedral in Johnstown. All are invited.
