Dialogue between Catholics & Evangelicals
More than 12 million Canadians identify as Roman Catholics. Hundreds of Catholic parishes are found from coast to coast in our nation. There are more than 95,000 Roman Catholics in the Saskatoon Diocese. As significant as these numbers are; the evangelical response to and connection with Roman Catholic people has been quite wide ranging.
For the past three years, ten evangelical leaders from various churches throughout our city have been spending time with a number of Roman Catholics working out a joint statement that identifies areas of common ground, key differences, and then ways we can work together. Our next Saskatoon Evangelical Minister’s Fellowship (SEMF) meeting will be about this dialogue and what has been learned along the way.
Here are the details for our October meeting….
THEME: Catholic – Evangelical Dialogue
DATE/TIME: Tues. October 21st, 2014 at 12noon until 1:30pm
LOCATION: Circle Drive Alliance Church at 3035 Preston Avenue South
Use Entrance A or B, turn left to ‘Common Ground’
COST: The meal is just $5.00 per person.
Please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org so we can prepare for the meal.
Each SEMF meeting, regardless of the topic always comes with opportunities to meet, share and connect with others in ministry throughout our community. The more we connect as the body of Christ in our city, the stronger the kingdom becomes. We hope to see you out on October 21st. God bless you…
Brad Mayer (SEMF Chair)
we will once again be providing opportunity to renew memberships with SEMF for the year ($30) as well as a few different options where one can cover the costs of the meals at our meetings throughout the year.
To view the “Common Statement of Faith” as drafted by the dialogue committee, go to the SEMF Calendar and view the Oct 16th event attachments… along with a letter of invitation by Pastor Harry Strauss to consider attending a public event on Thursday, October 16th at 7pm
