St. Michael’s is hosting a series of open forums focusing on the similarities and differences between the Episcopal/Anglican tradition and the Roman Catholic tradition. During the forums, participants will explore the fabled Henry VIII and his separation from Rome, the mystery of the shared Catholic faith, and the substantive differences in structures and moral authority in each church. The forums are led by the Rev. Harold R. Bronk (Ray), retired professor of the Study of Religion at UMass Boston, and the Rev. Dr. Joyce Caggiano. The discussions are open to the public and participants are invited to bring questions.
