Webinar: Baptists and Catholics together

Wed, 09/22/2021 - 11:00

Baptists and Catholics Together? Webinar on Sept. 22 will be held at 11am Saskatchewan (1pm ET).

Register for this free event at https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN__V8WGBYQT5-c1gCC6M8Zlg

Within the whole church, Baptists and Catholics might seem to be ecclesiological and liturgical polar opposites. The two traditions are arguably more dissimilar from one another than each is from almost any other Christian tradition. Yet, as veteran Baptist ecumenist Steven Harmon demonstrates in his forthcoming book Baptists, Catholics, and the Whole Church: Partners in the Pilgrimage to Unity, they share much in common that can enable them to travel together as fellow pilgrims on the journey toward a more visibly united church. Join Steven and leading Catholic ecumenist Paul Murray as they discuss Catholic-Baptist relations and how the Baptist-Catholic encounter can benefit the whole Christian community.

  • Steven Harmon is the author of books on ecumenism and Baptist studies that include Towards Baptist Catholicity (2006), Ecumenism Means You, Too (2010), and Baptist Identity and the Ecumenical Future(2016). He is a Cooperative Baptist Fellowship-affiliated ordained Baptist minister, past President of the National Association of Baptist Professors of Religion, and Co-Secretary of the Baptist-Catholic International Dialogue Joint Commission—Phase III.
  • Paul Murray is Professor of Systematic Theology and Dean and Director of the Centre for Catholic Studies at Durham University. In 2011 Pope Benedict XVI nominated him to the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC). He was a member of the drafting team for ARCIC III’s 2017 Agreed Statement, “Walking Together on the Way: Learning to Be the Church – Local, Regional, and Universal”, and he now continues to serve as a consultant to the Commission.

Rosary Novena to pray for Canadian voters during federal election campaign

Mon, 09/20/2021 - 07:00
Federal Election Rosary Novena

The national organization Catholic Conscience has launched a rosary novena for the people of Canada happening during the federal election campaign (running from Aug. 25 to Sept. 20, 2021)  to pray for Canadian voters and entrust them to the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph.

Find more information about the Catholic Conscience prayer event at:  www.novenaforcanadians.eventbrite.ca/

As Catholic Canadians, we are called to “seek the welfare of the city,” in the words of the Book of Jeremiah. We are, after all, citizens of two nations: this earthly country Canada, this place and people we all love, and the heavenly Kingdom of God. Let’s come together to praise the Lord of both these nations and to call on the intercession of the heavenly Kingdom for the needs of our earthly nation.

Join Canadians from coast to coast as we gather for a nine-day rosary novena to pray for the people of Canada, as Canadians each discern their own consciences in preparation to vote for our next government during the 2021 federal election. Voting determines the future of our country, by determining who we entrust with the common good of all Canadians. During this rosary novena, we will pray that all Canadians vote with love of neighbour at heart; with the core principles of Catholic social teaching in mind, including the common good, life and dignity of the human person, community, participation, rights and responsibilities, the preferential option for the poor, subsidiarity, solidarity, care for God’s creation, the dignity of work, and more; and that the Holy Spirit inspire all those running to lead their communities and serve as MPs, that they may live a superhuman oblation of self out of love for their constituents and the future of our country.

NOVENA SCHEDULE

1. Wednesday, August 25 at 6 pm SK time Pray with us for the people of the North.

2. Sunday, August 29 at 8 am SK time: Pray with us for the people of British Columbia.

9. Monday, September 20 at 7 am SK time: (Election Day): Entrust the voters of Canada to Mary, Seat of Wisdom & Queen of Heaven, and St. Joseph, Patron of Canada.

Part of our commission as disciples of Christ is to love and serve our neighbours, through concrete acts of service—including prayer. Together, let’s pray for the people of Canada during this critical moment for all of us, and entrust our fellow Canadians to Mary, the Seat of Wisdom & Queen of Heaven, and Saint Joseph, the Patron of Canada.
