CCC issues revised guide for public interfaith prayer and vigils

Christian Interfaith Reference Group, <em>A Guide for Participation in Public Events Involving More than One Religious or Spiritual Tradition</em> (Canadian Council of Churches, 2022)
Groupe consultatif interreligieux chrétien, <em>Guide pour la participation à des activités publiques réunissant plus d'une tradition religieuse ou spirituelle</em> (Conseil canadien des Églises, 2022)

The Canadian Council of Churches has released a revised version of guidelines first issued 20 years ago following the Swiss Air disaster at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia.

“Canadians come together when we remember and celebrate special events, and when we grieve and stand together in the face of catastrophes. Religious and spiritual leaders are frequently called on to show solidarity, express a word of hope, honour the divine, and channel our feelings toward justice and peace.”

Hope high that court will overturn refugee ruling

It will likely be months before refugee advocates, including the Canadian Council of Churches, know whether they have prevailed at the Supreme Court. But for now, council general secretary Rev. Peter Noteboom is satisfied that the argument to strike down the Safe Third Country Agreement between the United States and Canada has been heard.

Safe Third Country Agreement before Supreme Court

As Canada’s Safe Third Country Agreement with the United States goes back before the Supreme Court of Canada Oct. 6, Ottawa has revealed a surge of 23,358 asylum seekers at irregular border crossings in the first eight months of 2022.

That’s 13-per-cent more than all of 2017, when the flood of refugees at Quebec’s Roxham Road crossing from New York captured headlines.

Safe third country appeal heading to Supreme Court

The Canadian Council of Churches, Amnesty International and the Canadian Council for Refugees are headed to the Supreme Court of Canada on behalf of refugee families who want a legal way to apply for asylum at Canada’s land borders. After twice winning in Federal Court only to see those decisions reversed in the Federal Court of Appeal, this is the first time the Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments about the constitutional validity of Canada’s Safe Third Country Agreement (STCA) with the United States. Under the agreement, persons seeking refugee status must make their claim in the first country in which they arrive. It has been in place since 2004. A definitive ruling is necessary to clarify a system that forces would-be refugees to cross into Canada illegally at unofficial border crossings like Roxham Road south of Montreal at the Quebec-New York border, said Detroit Mercy University law professor Alex Vernon.

“Most refugees’ first experience of Canada is either to be summarily denied protection and excluded if they go to a (legal) port of entry without an exception to the STCA or to be forced to be ‘law breakers’ and arrested and processed upon entry at Roxham Road,” said Vernon, who runs Detroit Mercy’s immigration law clinic and regularly takes students to Roxham Road for real life experience of practising law on the border. “This is not in keeping with Canada’s international obligations, with constitutional rights of people on Canadian soil, nor with the dignity due to human beings — particularly human beings in distress.” The latest court loss for the refugee advocates at the CCC, AI and CCR came in April. The appeal court’s decision was based “not on substantive grounds, but on the basis of how the arguments were framed,” said a press release from the Canadian Council for Refugees.

The Canadian Council of Churches and the future of ecumenism

Much of the work of the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) today is reflected in its two commissions: the Commission on Faith and Witness, and the Commission on Justice and Peace. Where the former promotes theological reflection to improve mutual understanding between denominations, the latter focuses on efforts to foster peace and social justice in Canada and around the world.

Certain issues, such as the ordination of women or same-sex marriage, may be of both theological and social importance, and can find very different views reflected within the council.

In such cases, CCC President Alyson Barnett-Cowan said, “We try two things. One is we will have exploratory sessions where we try to get the sense of where different people are coming on different issues, and that would be one of them … But then on other matters, where we think there might be a consensus, we work hard to articulate what that consensus might be. So for example, protection of refugees, that’s kind of a no-brainer for the members of the council.”

‘Part of who we are’: Anglicans, ecumenism, and the Canadian Council of Churches

Members of the Canadian Council of Churches Governing Board attend a meeting in Ottawa at Saint Paul University

As one of the founding members of the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC), the Anglican Church of Canada has long played a major role in the country’s leading ecumenical council.

Ecumenism “is in the Anglican DNA”, according to Bishop Michael Oulton—one of the two current appointed Anglican representatives on the CCC governing board, along with Canon Mary Conliffe.

“I think that’s the heart of who we are as a church … I’m a huge believer in the importance of partnerships and building expanded partnerships wherever possible, and the Canadian Council of Churches is, I think, a critical part of that for us,” Oulton said.

“It’s always been part of who we are as Anglicans to try to find a common table around which to sit.”

Canadian Churches’ Forum becomes a CCC Reference Group

Last week, the Canadian Churches Forum and the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) came together at the CCC Governing Board meetings to make some important decisions about the future of their relationship and work. A motion was adopted that the CCF become the “Forum for Intercultural Leadership and Learning (FILL): A Reference Group of the Canadian Council of Churches.”

Moving more fully into the Council in this way opens the potential of working more closely with the CCC’s 26 member denominations and their diversity and experience. The Canadian Council of Churches is the broadest and most inclusive ecumenical body in the world, representing denominations of Anglican; Evangelical; Free Church; Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox; Protestant; and Catholic traditions. Together, the CCC churches represent more than 85% of Christians in Canada.

Also being considered are some shifts that will make Forum program alumni and others more creatively part of the work with a larger portion of this reference group’s resources going to supporting and networking people across Canada with a calling to intercultural ministry.

Faith & Witness: a podcast exploring ecumenism

Adaptation of 'Christ in the Storm on the Sea of Galilee' by Ludolf Backhuysen, 1695 (Wikimedia)

The Canadian Council of Churches and its Commission on Faith and Witness are proud to announce the release of the first episode of Faith & Witness, a podcast exploring ecumenism. Each month we’ll learn what happens when churches talk to each other, and about the people who have spent their lives in dialogue with Christians of other traditions.

This month’s episode features two segments. The first is a dialogue between Fr. Geoffrey Ready of the Orthodox Church in America (Canadian Archdiocese), and the Rev. Ian Sloan of the United Church of Canada. Fr. Geoffrey and Rev. Ian talk about the idea of salvation, and how Orthodox and United beliefs about salvation are the same, and how they differ.

In our second segment, Associate Secretary for the Commission Dr. Mary Marrocco interviews Fr. Damian MacPherson, SA, Director of the Office of Ecumenical & Interfaith Affairs for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto.

Please join us! You can download the episode here. If you have questions you would like to hear answered on the podcast, or about anything else, please email. Theme and interstitial music by Telepathic Teddy Bear (“Churches”; CC BY 4.0)

On Promoting Climate Justice and Ending Poverty in Canada

In conjunction with the United Nations Sustainable Development summit, currently underway, Canadian faith leaders are calling for climate justice in Canada—for all Canadians, and for the world. Together they have endorsed the statement “On Promoting Climate Justice and Ending Poverty in Canada.”

“On the same day when Pope Francis spoke at the UN General Assembly, asking for renewed ambition from wealthy countries in efforts to reach a solid international commitment to lower greenhouse gas emissions, this statement echoes the need for Canada to act,” said Joe Gunn, Executive Director of Citizens for Public Justice (CPJ).

“In midst of a federal election campaign, climate challenges, ending poverty and responding with justice to Indigenous rights cannot be dismissed. These religious signatories are right to call us to greater respect for the common good.”

CPJ, an affiliate member of the CCC, helped to draft the declaration. In 2011, the “Canadian Interfaith Call for Leadership and Action on Climate Change” was released by the CCC.

A new chapter of the Revd Canon Dr Alyson Barnett-Cowan’s lifelong ecumenical engagement has begun with her installation as the new president of the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) on 14 May. The current Interim Secretary General of the Anglican Communion and its former Director for Unity, Faith and Order, she was unanimously elected to a three-year term as CCC president by the council’s Governing Board. She succeeds Lt. Col. Jim Champ of the Salvation Army. A priest of the Anglican Church of Canada, for which she served several years as ecumenical officer, Canon Dr Barnett-Cowan had previously served a term as one of CCC’s vice-presidents. She brings with her a wealth of ecumenical experience, having been engaged with various inter-church dialogues and councils of churches at the local, regional, and international level. “I am delighted and honoured to have been chosen for this important voluntary position. It is wonderful to be able to put the experience I’ve gained working for the ecumenical life of the Anglican Communion to use in the service of the Canadian churches,” Canon Dr Barnett-Cowan said of her appointment.

Stephen Kendall, Vice President; the Rev. Dr. Willard Metzger, Vice President; Lt. Col Jim Champ, outgoing President; the Rev. Dr. Karen Hamilton, General Secretary

Outgoing CCC President Lt. Col. Jim Champ of the Salvation Army, and General Secretary Karen Hamilton, welcomed the new executive in brief but meaningful ceremony on Thursday evening, after a program which included a workshop on the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, and the introduction of Cesar Jaramillo, new executive director of CCC agency Project Ploughshares.

Members of the new executive include Larry Brennan, treasurer; Bishop Ron Fabbro (Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops), Vice President; the Rev. Canon Alyson Barnett-Cowan (Anglican Church of Canada), President; the Rev. Stephen Kendall (Presbyterian Church in Canada), Vice President; the Rev.

Bishops to release refugee statement

Fr Pierre Bisson, SJ, provincial superior of the Jesuits of English Canada

The fate of refugees and the struggles of immigrants in general is on the agenda for Canada’s Catholic bishops, but the bishops are steering clear of a national campaign supported by several church and lay groups which has been critical of the government’s record on refugee rights. The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops is currently working on a statement concerning refugees, migrants and immigrants to be released at an unspecified date. “In general, the conference does not release preliminary information about the development and eventual timelines of its various projects,” said CCCB spokesman René Laprise in an e-mail. “This is in order to ensure that the bishops and their advisors, both internal and external, have full freedom in drafting, developing and approving any eventual texts. This also avoids raising expectations and risking disappointments about the topics, nature and publication schedules of possible future texts.” In December, the bishops declined to sign a Human Rights Day statement calling on Ottawa to change course on refugee rights. Co-ordinated by the Canadian Council for Refugees, the statement called for fairness, respect and compassion in the treatment of refugees. “Canada can and must do better,” said the Dec. 10 statement. Signatories to the open letter ranged from former solicitor general Warren Allmand to Blue Rodeo guitarist Jim Cuddy. They also included the provincial superiors of both the English and French Canadian provinces of the Jesuits, the primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, the national bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, the moderator of the United Church of Canada and the moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Canada.

When Christian Faith and Genetics Meet: A Practical Group Resource

The new resource from the Canadian Council of Churches' Biotechnology Reference Group, 'Quand la religion chrétienne et la génétique se rencontrent'

Many families in our communities are questioning how their faith interacts with genetic science.

For instance, Frank and Julie are planning on having a child, but before conceiving they want to undergo genetic screenings to discover the chances they have of passing on a genetic disorder to their children. Neither wants to have an abortion. If there is a high risk of a genetic disorder they plan not to conceive, but to adopt. Is this ‘playing God’? If your partner has a history of deafness in their family, should you consider genetic testing?

Scenarios like these are addressed in a new resource from the Canadian Council of Churches’ Biotechnology Reference Group, “When Christian Faith and Genetics Meet.” It offers five case-study modules based on topics in genetics, as well as very basic introduction to genetics and genetic technology.

Quand la religion chrétienne et la génétique se rencontrent: un programme pratique pour groupes

Le nouveau document du Groupe consultatif sur la biotechnologie du Conseil Canadien des Églises, 'Quand la religion chrétienne et la génétique se rencontrent'

Bien des familles de nos communautés s’interrogent sur l’interaction entre leur foi et la génétique.

François et Julie, par exemple, ont l’intention d’avoir un enfant, mais avant la conception, ils veulent se soumettre à des criblages génétiques, pour savoir s’ils risquent de transmettre une maladie génétique à leurs enfants. Ni l’un, ni l’autre ne veut d’avortement. S’il y a un risque élevé de maladie génétique, ils prévoient l’adoption plutôt que la conception. S’agit-il là de « se prendre pour Dieu »? Si votre partenaire a des antécédents familiaux de surdité, devriez-vous envisager un test génétique?

On envisage ce genre de scénarios dans un nouveau document du Groupe consultatif sur la biotechnologie du Conseil Canadien des Églises, « Quand la religion chrétienne et la génétique se rencontrent ». On y présente cinq modules d’études de cas fondés sur des aspects génétiques, de même qu’une introduction très fondamentale à la génétique et à la technologie génétique.

Conseil canadien des églises / Canadian Council of Churches

Faith communities throughout Canada believe they have a moral responsibility to address global warming. As a result, religious leaders have prepared a Canadian Interfaith Call for Leadership and Action on Climate Change. This is among the first times that such a broad interfaith effort at a faith leaders’ letter has been undertaken in Canada.

Interfaith declaration on poverty in Canada: A Time for Inspired Leadership and Action

Together as people of faith, informed by our respective traditions, and compelled by our sincerely held beliefs to care for those in need within our communities and across this nation, we recognize this time to be a unique moment and opportunity in Canada for cooperative action to eradicate persistent poverty in our wealthy and wonderful land. It is a time when Canadians of all faiths, from all walks of life, from all parts of this great country are awakening to the unacceptable levels of poverty, inequity and homelessness, and acknowledging that this injustice must change.

But we cannot do this in isolation. Committed to doing all we can, we call upon our government to partner with us in ending poverty.

We acknowledge with gratitude the many positive government initiatives that continue to benefit the poor. In particular, it is gratifying to acknowledge that a majority of Canadians now live in provinces and territories that have developed and are implementing poverty reduction plans. But it is time for comprehensive, coordinated and collaborative action, with national leadership working in partnership with other jurisdictions.

The Bruised Reed: A Christian Reflection on Suffering and Hope

The Bruised Reed: A Christian Reflection on Suffering and Hope

The Bruised Reed: A Christian Reflection on Suffering and Hope

More than five years in the making, the Canadian Council of Churches’ Commission for Faith and Witness, has published a beautiful theological text on Suffering and Hope. The book stands apart from others in its highly experiential quality. It follows eight real Canadian stories to give rise to a highly experiential encounter with these challenging theological topics. This resource is an invaluable addition to any library.

This pastoral resource is the result of the Faith and Witness Commission’s being called upon to give shape and form to a paradox: the paradox of finding hope in suffering and suffering in hope.

The Commission for Justice and Peace has also pulled together a must have resource. It is a First Nations reflection on racism, truth, and reconciliation. You may order both resources through Erin Green, Communications Officer, . A donation of $10 is suggested to cover printing and mailing costs.
