Panel Discussion: Separation of Church & State

The Independent Christian Church (Unitarian-Universalist) in Gloucester, in conjunction with the Cape Ann Forum, will host a panel discussion on Separation of Church and State on Sunday, January 22, at 7pm, at the Meeting House located at 10 Church Street in Gloucester. The topic is the Separation of Church and State and the keynote speaker is Rev. Calvin W. Didier, a retired Presbyterian minister and three-time past President of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. A panel representing diverse views on this timely subject will join Rev. Didier in discussion and audience participation will also be encouraged.

The Universalist Meeting House (1805-06) is celebrating its Bicentennial this year with a series of community events and concerts like this one. The oldest standing church building in Gloucester, its stately spire has been guide to mariners and truth-seekers alike for over two hundred years. The event is free and open to the public. The Meeting House is located at the corner of Middle and Church Streets.
