"Yearning for 'Connectedness': Voices of Young Asian-Canadian Protestant Adults" - A Public Forum hosted by The Centre for Asian-Canadian Theology and Ministry at Knox College.

This forum will be a chance to discuss the findings from the Centre's recent research project: "Religious Attitudes and Commitments of 1.5 and 2nd Generation Asian-Canadian Protestant Young Adults," in which researchers surveyed 300 Asian-Canadian University students who identify as Protestant to better understand their religious attitudes and commitments to their churches, as well as gauge their ideas and expectations about the church and youth ministry.

This event is FREE but we kindly ask that you register beforehand. There is limited seating for this event so register TODAY by clicking here!

The forum will include presentations from the research team, responses from a panel of youth pastors that minister to Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese and other Canadian churches, and an opportunity for audience members to ask questions and discuss the research.

ALL ARE WELCOME!

Church and University: The St. Michael’s Faculty of Theology at SIXTY, presented by William H. Irwin, CSB, BA, MA, STL, SSD (Pontifical Biblical Institute) Professor Emeritus

In 2015 St. Michael’s celebrates sixty years of conferring degrees in theology. Theology has two communities it answers to: the community of faith and the community of learning. Without the church it’s the study of religion. Without the university it’s catechism. But to live in two communities without losing touch with either means continual adjustment. To chart the development of theology at St. Michael’s since that first convocation in 1955 is to chart its adjustment to a changing church and a changing university as they adjust to a changing world.

More information about the lecture is available here.

Admission is free.  Please RSVP here.
