Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 1, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, February 1, 1975 Friendship goal of Games project By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Religion Writer Friendship, not conversion, is the goal of the Canada Winter Games Interfaith Committee, supporting members agreed this week. "I am very apprehensive, of trying to Games vice president and western hospitality chairman Vera Ferguson told a meeting of clergy and laymen at First Baptist Church. Interfaith chairman Rev. Keith Churchill reported an offer had been received from the Canadian Bible Society, Calgary, to place scripture portions free of charge in the two athlete drop-in centres scheduled for St. Andrew's Presbyterian and First Bap- tist Church during the Games. "Entering a church building is a symbol in noted Christ Trinity Lutheran layman John Komar. Several clergy expressed reservation about placing Christian literature in the drop-in centres because Buddhist and Jewish groups have been ask- ed to support the project. Mrs. Ferguson suggested hospitali- ty arranged by the churches would impress young athletes more than attempts to proselytize. Religious literature is not likely to be read, claimed drop-in centre co-ordinator Bill Roycroft. Conversations -Tlic Hn-ald- Religion Missionary reports on Africa NATAL, B.C.

Brotherhood funds sought Peter Gordon, president and chief executive officer of the Steel Company of Canada Ltd. is the 1975 special gifts chairman of the Canadian Council.of Christians and Jews. He has already recruited over 200 business executives to assist him in raising the amount needed to cover the council's 1975 budgeted program. The council's interest lies in the entire field of intergroup relations. Among its major projects are the exchange of visits by French Canadian students from Quebec and English- speaking students from all other provinces; its promotion of ecumenical dialogues involving Catholics, Protestants and Jews, the sponsoring of numerous camps each summer, the conducting of seminars involving police and the community, also representatives of labour and management. The organization Was founded in 1947. McLeod to help build village Bruce McLeod, past moderator of the United Church, is go- ing to spend the next year doing manual labour in a Costa Rican village, the current issues of The United Church Observer reports. Dr. McLeod resigned in November from his pulpit at Bloor Street United Church, Toronto, and said he wanted a year off to plan for his future. He told The Observer he had decided to spend the year, beginning in July, "hoeing and hammering" to build a village for abandoned children in the central American country. The village is the first of several planned by a new Canadian organization, Pueblitos Inc. Dr. McLeod says it's hoped the first houses will be ready for the children by October. Priesthood crisis in U.S. NEW YORK (AP) Experts say the Roman Catholic Church is headed into a severe crisis in maintaining its priesthood in the United States. While resignations of priests have contributed to the problem, the main threat is seen in the sharply reduced entries of students into training for the ministry. That means the full impact won't be felt for five to 10 years, says a study presented to a recent convention in St. Louis of the National Conference of Diocesan Vocation Directors. The report says the number of students entering Catholic seminaries has dropped 50 per cent in the last seven years, in- dicating the output of new priests to replace others will be halv- ed in the near future. on a religious topic arising from one to one contact between volunteers and athletes is more natural, Mr. Roycroft said. He linked his comments to experience he has gained from operating The Salt Cellar, a coffee house ministry of Christian Taber- nacle. Some of the more than 150 volunteers have made ex- traordinary efforts preparing for the drop-in centre, Mr. Roycroft said. Several plan to assist on a daily basis. One volunteer is coming from the Episcopalian Church in Vancouver, Mr. Roycroft explained. "He has taken a university course in French especially to help at the drop- in centre." St. Margaret's Reformed Episcopalian Church, Van- couver, is well known in church circles as a West Coast nerve centre for the charismatic movement. The drop-in facilities will operate daily except Sunday, Feb. 16. Worship services in the host buildings, a morning community pancake breakfast at the Sportsplex and an even- ing mixed concert in the Yates Centre were deemed sufficient alternatives for athlete recreation. Some congregations are making direct contact with athletes inviting their participation in Sunday services and banquets. MENU Mr. Roycroft reported a musical menu including classical guitar, folk singing, Nova Scotia jazz and Lethbridge pianists, Plink and Plunk, will be offered during the evening at St.- Andrew's drop-in centre. Entertainers will receive a appearance fee supplied by the Games western hospitality com- mittee, Mr. Roycroft said. "And we hope to give a little something to drop-in he added. Interfaith leaders earlier agreed to support a budget of which includes for Mr. Roycroft's co-ordination duties. Mr. Churchill reported as of this week's meeting only has been received from 15 city churches. The committee initially contacted 40 congregations soliciting finan- cial support. Mrs. Ferguson assured the Interfaith representatives churches would not be left in debt on the hospitality pro- ject. "Let's press on in faith. It .will come in she said. City congregations were also invited to supply medical centre counsellors, emergency billets and worship, information for athletes. A list of 34 religious groups has been compiled for reference kits, and for posting in drop-in centres and medical counselling offices. FEAR Rev. Derek Hoskin, St. Augustine's Anglican curate, reported he has located 33 homes for a maximum of 50 emergency billets. Mr. Hoskin observed some possible hosts, especially older residents, are concerned about accommodating strangers. Fears, include character of guests, hour of arrival and departure and whether or not guests smoke in bed. The churches were asked to find 500 emergency billets with a policy of no fee for guests and no accommodation longer than two nights.

School Organist: Vivian Toth ARCHBISHOP JOSEPH MACNEIL ENJOYS SNOWSHOEING Busy bishop enjoys visiting his flock EDMONTON (CP) The desk in Archbishop Joseph MacNeil's office was covered with letters that needed an- swers and administrative pa- per work that needed his at- tention. The archbishop would an- swer the letters and complete the work, but first there were other things to talk- ing to- Roman Catholic stu- dents. "It's the easiest thing in the world to get tied up in admin- istrative said Arch- bishop MacNeil, a 50-year-old native of Sydney, N.S., who has headed the Edmonton archdiocese since October, 1973. "Look at the pile of stuff on the desk. I make a conscious effort to get out of here and do other things." Archbishop MacNeil, who often travels to area schools to meet students and teachers and celebrate mass, said "people simply think bishops or people like us are tied' be- hind a desk all the time." "I feel we should be out." The archbishop, equally at home talking about baseball or the need for church activ- ism, came to Edmonton after four years as bishop in Saint John, N.B. "We have to be sensitive to the society in which we live. The church has a role, in a way, of being a gadfly, to contradict the Society, to be in the conscience of the society." The church will never be ac- tive enough, maintained Archbishop MacNeil, a firm believer in the co-operative movement. "One of the great faults that could be laid at the door of the church is that we are not strongly opposed to some of the things that are happening in society. When I say church, I don't mean just the bishop and pastors, I mean all the people who are church members." Archbishop MacNeil likes to involve others in decision- making. "It's been much easier to share decision-making since the Second Vatican Council when the bishops spent so much time with the Pope dis- cussing all kinds of pastoral decisions. From that council it was suggested that in every Vancouver cathedral preservation assured VANCOUVER (CP) The New Westminster diocese of the Anglican Church has given unanimous approval to a plan which would see Christ Church Cathedral preserved for another 105 years. After the vote by the diocesan executive council, Bishop David Somerville gave his personal assent to the proposal. Richard Smith, chairman of the cathedral church com- mittee, said the cathedral lawyer will now meet with city officials to work out some legal technicalities before an agreement is -signed with the city and .Grander Developments Ltd. Under the proposed agreement, the church would receive a minimum million from Grander over the next 105 years. Catholic duke dead LONDON (Reuter) The Duke of Norfolk, 66, died Thursday night. Bernard Mar- maduke Fitzalan-Howard was Earl Marshal of England and one of the leading lay Roman Catholics in Britain. He organized the coronation of Queen Elizabeth, the investiture of Prince Charles as Prince of Wales, and the fu- neral of Sir Winston Churchill. In return, the church would agree to restrict any develop- ment or building on church lands larger or higher than ex- isting buildings, except possi- ble construction of a spire at some future date. Grander, which owns most of.the cathedral block, would then receive permission from city council to build a retail and office development larger than what normally would be allowed. City council gave preliminary approval to the plan last month. The agree- ment ends a long-standing dis- pute over the cathedral's future. Financial losses over several years caused the congregation to consider tear- ing down the cathedral at Georgia and Burrard to make way for a multi-million dollar combined church and office tower. City council, however, voted to preserve the 85-year-old stone structure and formally declared it an historic site. diocese 'there would be that kind of procedure. "It isn't an easy thing to work out since we have the structures of the There were some matters that can't be decided by vot- ing. "You can't sit down and de- cide by a vote whether there is a God or not. "So the question is how do you have some sort of demo- cratic procedure so we can in fact sit down and say do we need a new church building, or do we need a new course in theology or do we need a new program for the ill people. "All of these things which are very important can be dis- cussed at all kinds of levels." Archbishop MacNeil said the ecumenical movement is not dead. "If we don't hear as much about ecumenism now it's simply because it's no longer the favorite of the press. "It was like everything else when it was new. It was kind Of a favorite for a lot Of people to talk about ecumenism and getting together and going to each other's church and hav- ing an ecumenical service. "That's when it was all new and kind of wonderful." Archbishop MacNeil makes time in his hectic schedule for relaxation, such as golfing, skating and snowshbeing. "No man can work day and night. You have to make time for yourself, no matter how busy you are." CENTRAL CHURCH OF CHRIST 425-11th St. S. J. R. CHAPMAN, Minister MR. D.
