    In the early days of mining in Canada, I wonder how much effort was required by local communities to safeguard proper mining practices by companies when the issue was a domestic one?

    Brian Finamore

    On Wednesday July 4th the Mad Hatter Olde British Pub was a buzz with young adults passionately discussing the issues of justice.  Brian Finamore’s talk on “Human Dignity - Bob Barker: Is the Price Right?” gave us a lot to think about.  It was the first talk in a four part Faith Connections’ Theology on Tap Justice Series being held this July.

    "God made two great lights - the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night - and stars.  God set them in the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth, to rule over the day and over the night, and separate the light form the darkness.  And God saw that it was good" (Genesis 1.16-1.18, NRSV).

  • Taizé Montreal: A Weekend of Friendship

    Taizé Montreal
    On April 27-29, 2007 1000 young adults (18-35yrs) embarked on a pilgrimage to Taizé Montreal. With some nerves and lots of excitement we wondered what would be in store for us when we arrived in Montreal. I had heard of the Taizé community, and I generally knew what they were about: prayer. In addition there was also this wonderful idea of praying with some other Christians, an ecumenical gathering. I am a Catholic and love what I experience in my Church, but I also wondered why it is not possible to SAY that we are one body (Ef. 4, 4-6) and live up to it.
  • Jesus is Risen! Truly He is Risen!

    Fr. Allan MacDonald & Sr. Therese Meunier

    On Monday, April 23, Fr. Allan MacDonald, Chaplain of York Catholic Chaplaincy and member of the Companions of the Cross, discussed "Proofs of the Resurrection". For all Catholics, belief in the Resurrection of Jesus is a required component of faith. Fr. Allan's exploration of the evidence helped strengthen our belief in this shared meta-narrative.
