Sun, 03/21/2021 - 17:00

A Cross-Canada Day of Prayer for Hong Kong will be held on Sunday, March 21 from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM CST organized by the Canadian Council of Churches.

Churches and individuals are invited to participate in a day of prayer for peace and justice to transform Hong Kong, and to join other communities across Canada in a virtual prayer evening. Canada and Canadians have deep ties with Hong Kong. We feel the pain and suffering and uncertainty many people in Hong Kong are experiencing now. The gospel calls us to grieve with those who grieve, to bear witness to the pain and needs of others, to show solidarity with and hospitality to the needy, and to lift up and attend to their spiritual needs. Join in prayer for transformative peace and justice to touch the Church, society, and people of Hong Kong. We pray for the prophetic witness of the Church in society. We pray for many in Hong Kong who struggle to understand what the future holds.

Theology and Spirituality of Sexuality – online Queen’s House event with Fr. Ron Rolheiser

Sat, 03/13/2021 - 00:00

A Theology and Spirituality of Sexuality: Understanding the Complex Fire Within is a Zoom event with Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OMI, to be held March 12-14.

Sex is too often seen as setting itself against spirituality. Sex seems too earthy to be connected to spirit. Evidence suggests that more people struggle religiously with the issue of sexuality than with any area in their lives. What is sexuality? Why is it so powerful? Does it come from God or does it set us against God? This retreat will attempt to articulate a healthy anthropology, theology, and spirituality of sex.

The online Zoom event will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday March 12; from 8:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday March 13; and from 8:15 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Sunday March 14. Cost: $100 per screen. A recording of this retreat will be available to anyone who cannot join live. Registration deadline: March 11. Register online at https://qh.retreatportal.com/events/f?p=EVENTS:1 or leave a message at (306) 242-1916.
