We Are Church International is asking all WAC Groups around the world to take part in an international action to mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
We want to highlight the 5 aims of WAC. The date chosen is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 theses for reform, which he nailed to the door of All Saints Church in Wittenburg on 31 October 1517.
We are asking our members to organise vigils outside your local cathedrals and churches on Sunday the 29 October 2017. Attached is a sample poster. PLEASE do take a photo of each group and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TAKE PART IN THIS PROJECT ON SUNDAY 29 OCTOBER 2017 PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO COLM HOLMES
- The attached poster has a simplified list of WAC’s 5 aims, which we can use to make into posters.
- We ask all our members to display these posters outside churches on Sunday 29 October 2017. You might make some larger prints of the poster. And you might make photocopies of the poster to hand out. The vigil should only be for maximum one hour – maybe as people arrive or leave the main Mass?
- Please arrange to take photos outside each church and send the photos to email@example.com to publish on WAC websites / social media. Even ONE person with the Poster can be photographed. Please identify the churches when you send the photos.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE IN THE PHOTOS IS HAPPY TO HAVE THE PHOTO PUBLISHED ONLINE.
- Our aim is to have photographs from at least 500 different locations around the world.
- And another aim is to have photographs from all 6 continents.
