"We are trying to get the congregation together in an atmosphere different to when they are at worship," Rev. Ken Jordan, the minister, explains. Future family activities include a Sunday in June at Water-ton Park, Mr. Jordan said. The congregation is also using monthly coffee hours for fellowship following regular worship services. Pancakes will be served at 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 17 in the lower hall of First United Church. These gatherings are open to any persons wishing to attend, Mr. Jordan said. Executive commissioners re-1 resenting a pirn to unite more' than four million Canadian Christians under one denomination will possibly visit Lethbridge in March. A tentative schedule for Canon Ralph Latimer of the Anglican Church in Canada, and Dr. Robert Craig of the United Church, was announced this week. In each community, meeting arrangements will be the responsibility of local clergy and church representatives. The commissioners have proposed public meetings be arranged so they can present the plan to the community and assist in making its possibilities real according to local circumstances. Lethbridge meetings to consider union under the title, The Church of Christ in Canada, are tentatively set for March 16. The 108-page plan for union, wiiich proposes among other things that women be eligible for all forms of ministerial duties, was unveiled Wednesday before the executive bodies of each of the churches. NOT UNIFORMITY The plan does not call for uniformity among the churches. "We can continue to worship in the way that means most to us," a church release states.

Appeal chairman Lord Amory said: "We have enough to safeguard St. Paul's for as far ahead so we can see and to take care of inflation." CITY PAYS THE MOST The amount of money raised is thought to be the largest ever- subscribed to help preserve a building. The bulk of it has come from City of London coffers, but more than $470,000 was contributed from the United States' and gifts also flowed in from Australia and New Zealand. Meanwhile, work has started on surveying and reinforcing the west - front towers and the pediment of the south traept, which are in danger of slipping, largely due to traffic vibration around the 260-year-old structure. for a full ministry of the whole people of God: the laity, the bishops, the presbyters and the deacons." The plan includes 13 "articles of faith" which "make clear that The Church of Christ in Canada stands firm in the Catholic and evangelical faith of Christ's church proclaimed in all ages." Members of the negctiating churches will be received by the single new church and "people from all backgrounds and conditions" will be welcomed, ,the statement says. The new church would "include the basic elements which have characterized Caristten worship from the beginning," and would provide for "congregational participation in worship under the guidance of the bishop, the presbyter and the Pastoral Zone Council." The structure of the new church would involve pastoral zones at the local level; a district "which provides for pastoral oversight and implementation of programs of a number of pastoral zones in small areas"; regions made up of districts and a General Assembly determining policy. The General Assembly would meet every two years with occasional conferences of active bishops to discuss "matters of common concern." Dr. Bruce McLeod, moderator of the United Church of Canada said, he hoped persons objecting to parts of the plan for union would not leave "in sectarian zeal" to establish independent groups. He hoped "when the church moves, the whole church moves " Archbishop E. W. Scott, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada said "a substantial majority" of church members would have to approve plans for union before it would take force. He said the churches "won't take action until local levels have a chance to see it." A broadening ecumenical approach and widening community service highlight progress at Naramata Centre, 10 .miles north of Penticton, B.C. Founded hi 1947 in a single, borrowed house, Naramata provides opportunities for young adults in the United Church of Canada. However, Naramata soon reveals its ecumsnical character. During 197",, facilities were used by Anglican, Roman Catholic, Lutheran and Unitarian groups. At the same time, Naramata has broadened its general community service as a residential learning facility. Until 1968, educational events at Naramata were predominately church oriented. By 1972, th2 program was equally divided between church and community events. Rev. Ivan Cumming, director, defined Naramata's program of renewal. "The beauty of the setting, on Okanagan Lake amid rolling orchard lands with hills rising on all sides, provides an atmosphere of peace and detachment," he said. "This is an ideal setting for the adventure of discovery and renewal which is Eit the heart of our education philosophy." From a single house, Naramata has grown to 19 acres with 31 residential cottages, two dormitories, a large gymnasium, dining room - kitchen complex, numerous meeting areas, classrooms and lounges, 10 staff residences and main* tenance services. In 1972, a $1 million building and development fund campaign was launched to improve existing facilities and increase Naramata's versatility. Spring programs at Naramata include continuing education for church professionals, clergy and laymen; human relations training; a married couples conference and a session for persons recently retired. 'Pill' bishop told Vo quit LIVERPOOL, England (AP) -Roman Catholic priests have asked a bishop who supported birth control on a television show to resign because of his "monstrous" views. The Catholic Priests' Association, which claims to represent about 1,600 of Britain's 7,000 priests, said today in a letter to Augustine Harris, auxiliary bishop of Liverpool, he had lost an opportunity to "show the purity of Catholic doctrine rising above the mm-1- filth of modern man's sex life." It demanded he either resign or "publicly denounce the falsity of his views." The bishop said on a current affairs program Monday that a Catholic woman referred to by the interviewer should 'take the pill, say her prayers and go to tiie sacraments." Pope Paul nominates 30 new cardinals By PAUL HOFMANN New York Times Service ROME - Pope Paul VI has nominated 30 new cardinals from all continents, including three Americans. The new princes of the church in the United States are the Archbishop of Boston, the Most Rev. Humbert S. Medeir-os: the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Most Rev.

In another solemn ceremony on March 8, the pontiff will give each of the new cardinals bis red hat, the badge of his new rank. The cardinals ar the principal advisers to the pope in the government of the church. As a group, they form the Sacred College of Cardinals, which has often been called the senate of the church. However, since the Ecumenical Council Vatican II, held from 1062 to 1965, Pcpe Paul has created a new advisory body, the Bishops' Synod.

"Members of the congregation plan to invite neighbors to their home for an informal friendship evening," Rev. Robert Deasley explains.

Since the late 13th century, only cardinals have been elected popes, although theoretically the man chosen to head the church does not even have to be a priest. Pope Paul is understood to be considering a reform of the papal election system whereby some bishops who are not car-dinls, and possibly some selected priests as well, would join the conclave. The 30 prelates who are to be elevated to the cardinalate include eight Italians, Two Frenchmen, two Spaniards, two Brazilians, two Australians, and one nominee each from West Germany, Poland, Portugal, Pakistan, Japan, Mexico, Col-on.':>ia, Argentina, Congo (Braz-zaiille), Kenya and Western Samoa.
