Parish did well to bring in theologian

May 28, 2012

I would like to thank St. Michael-Resurrection Parish for the effort and risk they took in bringing to us in Edmonton a world class speaker of the calibre of Dr. Richard Gaillardetz.

Time for a new ecumenical commission

May 21, 2012

I was surprised by a statement in the WCR that "There has been some ecumenical activities in the area and in Edmonton, but in terms of a structure like this, apparently this is the first" ("Christian unity is a mandate from Christ," WCR, April 2).
