Made For Love, by Father Mike Schmitz, addresses the Catholic Church's teachings on sexuality and same-sex attraction from an intellectual, practical and relational perspective. We are excited to dive into this book in a small group setting over four meetings on May 30th; June 13th; June 27th; and July 11th.
This small group study is open to all members of our Canadian Martyrs' community, including Alpha participants, graduate and undergraduate students, and alumni. Many of us have serious questions on this topic, and if this is something you would like to explore more deeply, we invite you to join us!
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Each session looks at a different question and is designed to create conversation. There’s no pressure, no follow-up and no charge; it’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.
Hosted at Canadian Martyrs Catholic Church & Chaplaincy
Sundays 9:30am - 11:30am
April 21st - June 23rd
Each session includes Brunch, Video, and Discussion
No matter your age, spiritual background or experience, all are welcome to come learn and share!
The Paschal candle represents Christ, the Light of the World.
During the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday night the candle is carried in the procession into the dark church. A new fire, symbolizing our eternal life in Christ, is kindled which lights the candle. The candle, representing Christ himself, is blessed by the priest who then inscribes in it a cross, the first letters and last of the Greek alphabet, (Alpha and Omega `the beginning and the end').
SEVEN LAST WORDS - A LENTEN CONCERT
This Spring Musikay has assembled a small team of fantastic singers with beautiful voices to offer a Lenten inspired music program. Kasia Konstanty, Anne Kae, and Richard Hansen join our Maestro Stephane Potvin in singing the beautiful and inspirational music. The program will consist of Mass for four voices and Ave verum corpus by Williams Byrd, Oculi omnium by Heinrich Schütz, Miserere by Joseph Rheinberger, Hosanna filio David by Tomás Luis de Victoria, Les sept paroles de Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ sur la croix by Charles Gounod, along with the haunting Stabat Mater Gregorian chant.
Benefiting from the wonderful acoustics of Canadian Martyrs Church in Westdale, the music and voices reverberate in what feels like a celestial vessel. The warmth of the building brings the music to life in ways that the composer probably imagined and likely experienced themselves.
Tickets are available at the door and online: http://musikay.ca/product/last_words/
