ST. MONICA PARISH: A HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY

Discerning The Spirit At Work In Our Common History: Inspired by the BBC video series “A History of Christianity”, and led by Fr. Raymond Lafontaine, Jennifer Dickson, and Robert Assaly, our six-part series continues with parts four to six where we will consider the impact of the Protestant Reformation and the rise of Evangelical Christianity, and seek to discern where the Spirit is moving the Church in a post-modern, secular age. The first three parts were presented in November 2016.  Please join us on Wednesday evenings, March 15, 22, and 29 from 7pm-9pm in the parish hall (6405 de Terrebonne St., Montreal). For information and to register by March 13, contact Anna at 514-481-0267 x22 or anna.diodati@stmonica.ca.

ST. MONICA PARISH: CARE FOR THE SICK AND DYING, A MISSION OF MERCY

We sometimes hear euthanasia and assisted suicide described as “mercy-killing”. Palliative care invites us to truly care for the chronically or terminally ill with compassion, to relieve their suffering, and ultimately prepare them for their journey home. Join Deacon Richard Haber, M.D. and a panel of invited guests on Saturday, November 14 from 10am-12pm (6405 de Terrebonne St., Montreal) to learn about this merciful way of caring for the sick and dying. Please register by November 12. Contact Anna at 514-481-0267 x22 or anna.diodati@stmonica.ca.

THE NEWMAN CENTRE: AN INTERACTIVE FORUM ON THE THE SYNOD ON THE FAMILY

All are welcome on Thursday, October 29 at 6pm (3484 Peel St., Montreal). The Synod on the Family will conclude on October 25 and its results will arguably produce one of the most significant documents to affect the ordinary life of Catholics since Humanae vitae, promulgated in 1968. Students and the wider community are invited to attend an interactive forum with three expert panelists: Prof. Douglas Farrow (McGill), Prof. Solange Lefebvre (U de M) and Fr. Eric Nicolai (Riverview Study Centre). They have been following the synod proceedings closely and are eager to answer your questions. For more information, visit http://newmancentre.org/wp/?p=990.
