Impressed with ecumenical cooperation

Letter to the editor

Posted: Wednesday, March 22, 2006

With the tragic fire at Holy Trinity church, I was impressed with the truly Christian-Alaskan response of the Catholic Church to offer the use of their cathedral to the Episcopal parishioners for their services. I know from the history of Interior Alaska that many years ago, the Catholic and Episcopal missionaries helped each other. Their common Christian beliefs outweighed denominational differences. The spirit of cooperation, not just in words but in practice, over many generations makes one proud to be an Alaskan.
