Catholics and Lutherans will demonstrate their unity and commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation during a prayer service at 7 p.m. Oct. 29 at Sacred Heart Cathedral, 296 Flower City Park, Rochester.

Bishop Salvatore R. Matano and Bishop John Stanley Macholz of the Upstate New York Synod/Evangelical Lutheran Church in America will preside. All are welcome.

The prayer service follows a series of talks held earlier this year between the two denominations to help further cooperation, mutual understanding and respect between Catholics and Lutherans.
