A Reformation Debate-- John Calvin and Jacopo Sadoleto

In 1539, taking advantage of the confusion in Geneva, Roman Catholic Cardinal Jacopo Sadoleto wrote an exhaustive letter to the leaders of Geneva, lambasting the Reformers and laying before the Genevans the case for their city to return to the Roman Catholic side.


Last fiscal year, approx. 226 Genevans requested counseling services and crisis intervention services, or, approximately 27% of all clients served by the agency.
