The 2014 Irénée Beaubien Ecumenical Institute

<a href='http://oikoumene.ca' target='_blank'>Centre canadien d'œcuménisme/Canadian Centre for Ecumenism

To promote Christian Unity and Dialogue among World Religions

The October launching of the 1st Irénée Beaubien, s.j. Ecumenical Institute by the Canadian Centre for Ecumenism will assemble noted experts in ecumenism (Christian unity) and interreligious dialogue. Fifty years after the foundation of the Centre and the publication of the Vatican Council II decree on ecumenism, this event will create a space where the theory and the practice of ecumenism can intersect and serve as a platform for future action. Pioneers who laboured to establish dialogue when this was not the popular thing to do will pass on their experience and the knowledge gleaned from their efforts to a younger generation passionate about overcoming differences and working together. Society will reap the benefits.

The Irénée Beaubien Ecumenical Institute will bring together people from different churches and different religions for two days of conferences, October 24-25, in the Anglican diocese’s Fulford Hall in Montréal located at 1444 Union Avenue. Participants will learn from some fourteen church leaders and specialists in the fields of inter-church and interfaith dialogue as these speakers explore the understanding and the practice of ecumenism from different angles. Question periods following each talk will provide the opportunity for clarification and exchange.

Has Christ Been Divided? The Ecumenical Context in Canada

Le Christ est-il divisé ? - The artwork from the French resources for the 2014 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Among the many factors that influence Canadian religious experience is the sheer size of our country. Canada is the second largest country in the world, 40% of which is in the Arctic, north of 60o latitude. Stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from the United States to the North Pole, Canada has ten provinces and three territories. We are surrounded by three oceans: the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic. Our only land border is with the United States and it has experienced almost 200 years of peace. Canada is a confederation of former British colonies, with a parliamentary form of government in a federal system of ten provinces and three territories. The union of the former colonial territories and independence from Britain occurred peacefully, and Canada remains a strong proponent of international engagement and cooperation. The vast distances between our cities have promoted both self-reliance and formation of distinct identities in the regions, but can also engender feelings of alienation or resentment.

Canada is known for its natural splendour: its mountains, forests, lakes and rivers, seas of wheat and three ocean shorelines. This is a land rich in agriculture and natural resources. Canada is also a land of diverse peoples: First Nations, Inuit, and Métis,2 and many people who came to settle here from around the world. We have two official languages, French and English, yet many Canadians also celebrate the cultural and linguistic heritages of their ancestral homelands.

Has Christ Been Divided? The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in 2014

Cristo non può essere diviso - The artwork from the Italian translation of the 2014 resources for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The world will pray with Canada this January, and in a special way with native Canadians. For the second time in the 106-year history of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Canadians have written the biblical reflections, prayer services and educational materials to be used worldwide.

Celebrated Jan. 18-25, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is prepared each year in a different country under the direction of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity in Rome and the Geneva-based World Council of Churches’ Faith and Order Commission. Since the two major ecumenical organizations took over the annual event in 1968, Canada is just the second country to be asked twice to prepare the worship and study material.

Coming back to Canada, the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity wanted to make sure the material is fresh and reflects a different perspective. In 1989 Canada’s offering was prepared by the Canadian Council of Churches. This time, preparations were led by the Canadian Centre for Ecumenism in Montreal and the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism in Saskatoon.

Having Canada’s independent ecumenical centres take over was the initiative of Saskatoon Bishop Donald Bolen, who for years worked on the Week of Prayer as an official for the Pontifical Council in Rome. Though the CCC did not lead the 2014 effort, general secretary Rev. Dr. Karen Hamilton played an important role helping to review the material, said Nicholas Jesson, ecumenical officer for the diocese of Saskatoon and part of the 2014 writing committee.

New director at CCE: Adriana Bara

The President and Board of Directors of the Canadian Centre for Ecumenism is pleased to announce that Dr. Adriana Bara has been appointed Executive Director of the CCE as of August 1st, 2013.

Originally from Romania, Adriana Bara with her husband and two children moved to Canada several years ago. With a degree in civil engineering, she worked for a few years in this field and then pursued studies in theology first in Romania and then in Montreal (M.A. Concordia and Ph.D. Université de Montréal). She has been teaching at Concordia University since 2009. Dr. Bara worked at the Centre for Research and Documentation of Saint Joseph’s Oratory and since 2008 as volunteer with the Canadian Society of Patristic Studies where she is Communications Officer and Editor of the e-Bulletin.

An active member of the Romanian Orthodox Church, Dr. Bara is fluent in three languages. From her youth, she has recognized the importance of respecting human rights and is convinced of the key role played by ecumenism and interreligious dialogue in our modern pluralistic society. This is one of the reasons she chose to settle in Canada. She attaches great importance to dialogue, openness and acceptance of others. These are also the values of the Canadian Centre for Ecumenism. The President and Board of Directors are confident that Dr. Bara will lead the Centre with intelligence and discernment in an environment increasingly multicultural and multireligious.
