Ecumenical Service of Thanksgiving
October 22, 2013
Ecumenical Service of Thanksgiving, Nov. 2, 7 p.m, 3390 Portage Ave: Since 1967, the Catholic Parish of Blessed John XXIII and the Anglican Parish of St Chad have shared the Assiniboia Christian Centre, in one of the first ecumenical ventures of its kind. At the end of this month, this arrangement will come to an end: St Chad's will relocate to Kirkfield Park United Church, and Blessed John XXIII will assume ownership of the Centre and continue worshipping there. To give thanks for this 45-year journey together, an ecumenical service will be held on Sat., Nov. 2, at 7 p.m. at Assiniboia Christian Centre, 3390 Portage Ave. Archbishop Weisgerber and Anglican Bishop Donald Phillips will be present. Refreshments will follow. Past and present parish members, and all interested persons are cordially invited to attend.
