Cooperation in Ayr, Ontario

For more than 30 years, the Catholic and Anglican communities of Ayr, Ontario have been using one worship space, namely Christ Anglican Church.

Christ Church, Ayr, Ontario, in the Diocese of Huron, was established in 1917 and is now part of a 2-point parish with St. George's, New Hamburg.

A survey of the Ayr area in 1981 identified 100 Catholic families who were attending at least 14 different churches in and around the region. Local Anglicans and Catholics worked out the details of the sharing of facilities. After nearly two decades the local Catholics congregation was officially designated as a mission when in 2000, the St. Brigid Catholic Community came under the pastoral care of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Kitchener. Today, St. Brigid Mission includes about 85 families, the same number as are involved in Christ Anglican.

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is one of the oldest, most widely observed ecumenical events in the world and is held from January 18 to 25. This is the octave was proposed by Paul Wattson in 1908, because it begins with the feast of St. Peter and ends with the feast of the conversion of St. Paul.

The theme and a focus biblical text are prepared by an international Joint Committee of the World Council of Churches and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. National and regional councils of churches work to adapt and add to these resources as appropriate to their local context.

The material for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in 2012 was prepared by a working group composed of representatives of the Roman Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church and Old Catholic and Protestant Churches active in Poland. The theme this year is:

"We will all be changed by the Victory of our Lord Jesus Christ"
(cf. 1 Cor 15:51-58)

Liberals to Consider Cutting Ties with Monarchy

At their Jan. 13-15 policy convention in Ottawa, Liberals will vote on the following resolution:

"Be it resolved that the Liberal Party of Canada urge the Parliament of Canada to form an all party committee to study the implementation of instituting a Canadian head of state popularly elected and sever formal ties with the British Crown."

The resolution was put forward by the Young Liberals of Canada. They note that "Canada is a multicultural nation, built by people from many diverse backgrounds and where at present no Canadian citizen can ever aspire to be head of state of our own country."

Moreover, they say that "foreign law bars individuals not of the Anglican faith" from becoming the monarch, and Canadians pay more to maintain the monarchy than do the British.

Joint Anglican-Lutheran National Meeting in 2013

A joint Anglican-Lutheran national meeting will take place on July 3 to 7, 2013, at the Ottawa Convention Centre with the theme of "Together for the love of the world." Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, has said that the meeting will be "a tremendous ecumenical witness to the whole church."

Archdeacon Michael Thompson, general secretary, said "There will be conversations about the future" and the meeting will have "a great capacity to refresh the discourses of the two churches." Among other things, joint worship, joint mission work, and a joint "witness event" on Parliament Hill are being planned.
