LA CROSSE, Wis.—Anglican (Episcopal) and Roman Catholic dialogue from 1981-02 will be the subject of a talk at Viterbo Thursday, Nov. 14 by Fr. Bernard McGarty and Bishop William Wantland.

The multimedia presentation, "Up the Down Staircase," begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.

McGarty has earned a doctorate in theology and is a visiting professor in ecumenical studies at Viterbo. Bishop Wantland is the retired bishop of the Episcopal Diocese in Eau Claire and he holds a doctorate in civil and canon law.

Both presented a lecture last year outlining the earlier history of the two faiths to a crowd of 300 and, according to McGarty, the upcoming presentation will focus on a number of recently published significant documents that share mutual concerns.

Between 1965 and 1999, nine common documents have been issued jointly by the two Churches.

The McGarty/Wantland lecture will last approximately one hour and be followed by an answer and question session. A reception after the presentation will provide an opportunity for further conversations with the presenters.

This event is free and open to the public.
