Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, June 1, 1974 Church hopping backward step' By CHRIS STEWART Herald Staff Writer A need for more co- operation amongst local churches has been expressed by Rev. Albert Baldeo, minister at Coaldale United Church and outgoing president of the Lethbridge and District Ministerial Association. While pleased with efforts already undertaken by area churches, especially in a combined program during Key 73, Mr. Baldeo feels there is room for much more improvement. "The basic need for the salvation of individuals exists in all churches." he said. "We must put an end to our exclusiveness and work together." Just back from an Alberta United Church conference at the Olds Agriculture College, Mr Baldeo reports Dr. Norman McKenzie of Toronto, general conference representative, is seeking to set up evangelistic efforts in United churches across Canada. "Evangelism is basically the sharing of the "good news" no matter how or where it is Mr. Baldeo said. "It is high time we forgot about our denominational barriers and got on with the job of evangelization." For individuals to leave a particular church and join another because it is more evangelistic is a backward step. Mr. Baldeo says. "Why not stay where the darkness is and penetrate it with he asks. "If you're a Christian you are supposed to share the gospel with others, not hunt for a comfortable, cozy situation for yourself." The Ministerial Association will hold their annual meeting at a June 13 picnic at Henderson Lake park. Mr. Baldeo, who was re- elected chairman of the World Outreach division of the Alberta conference recently, added some observations about African freedom movements. "Christians tend to get very 'up tight' about supporting freedom he said. "Yet they make a great deal about the heroes who secured their freedom at least it would seem so every Remembrance Day, on November llth." "We make a great deal of the men who fought for us against suppression but we Church Chuckle by CARTWRIGHT 'We need to unite!

(AP) Charles Fogarty, 78, applied for entry to a nursing school five days ago, but was rejected because-he was too old. Today, he started a new a Roman Catholic priest. "I've been given excellent training and I'll be working for a great said Fogarty. shortly before his ordination to the priesthood. A merchandising executive, Fogarty left his San Francisco home in 1965 for a life of retirement in this Atlantic Coast resort community, but quickly grew bored. "I joined the Red Cross branch in Fort Lauderdale and did a lot of hospital volunteer work, but I couldn't do he said. "I wanted to become a nurse after my wife died in '69 but my application to nursing school was turned down be- cause I was over 55." Born and riased a Roman Catholic. Fogarty had always "tried to be a good layman" and after months of deliberation vowed to start a new life. "I decided that if I couldn't take care of patients physically I'd try to take care of them he said. Fogarty, who begins each day with a two-mile jogging session, enrolled at the Consolata Theological House of Studies at Somerset, N.J., four years ago. Today, he was ordained at the Church of St. Matthias in Somerset into the Consolata Society for Foreign Missions, an order of Roman Catholic priests serving as missionaries throughout Africa and South America.

Ivany relishes ombudsman work By BERNIE GOEDHART EDMONTON (CP) Alberta's new ombudsman, an Anglican priest, describes himself as "a workaholic" and relishes the prospect of satisfying his addiction. "I will always want to Very Rev. Randall Ivany said in an interview shortly before he assumed duties as ombudsman. "I can relax working. "I'm not really a procrastinator and this puts a lot of people off. The fact that I will plow my way through very often, I suppose, covers up a lot of inadequacies." Dr. Ivany, 41, was appointed dean of All Saints Cathedral in 1970 and tackled the job with vigor. He had come to Edmonton the year before. Education Minister Lou Hyndman, chairman of a special committee that recommended him as successor to George'McLellan in the ombudsman's post, described Dr. Ivany as an objective person with a "flash of independence." "Although he will be a sensitive listener, he will not become involved with every person who happens to come to his Mr. Hyndman said. A native of Port Rexton, Nfld., Dr. Ivany earned a bachelor of engineering degree in 1958 and worked as an electrical engineer before entering theology. He obtained two theology degrees, was ordained and in the early 1960s became rector of two churches near Calgary. From 1963 to 1968 he was rector of St. Luke's Church in Red Deer and in the winter of 1968-69 he served as interim rector at St. John's Episcopal Church in Oklahoma City, Okla. The announcement that he had been recommended as successor to Mr. McClellan, former RCMP commissioner and Canada's first provincial ombudsman, was a surprise to many. Dr. Ivany, who stressed he was going into the new job "as a churchman and a priest." was relieved when his appointment became public knowledge after receiving unanimous approval from the legislature. African preacher finds church dull HAMILTON. Ont. (CP) Although Canadian churches have been sending missionaries overseas for years, it is only recently that Africa has sent its first missionary to Canada. If the idea catches on. other missionaries will come to Canada from Third World countries. Rev. Elijah K. Lumbama, 41. of Zambia is interim minister of Olivet United Church in Hamilton and missionary-at-large from the Third World. "In the past, this mission business was a one-way street." Mr. Lumbama said. "It used to mean you give and we get. But we in Africa have been on the receiving end for too long. The time has come to share what we have and to exchange personnel." The minister and his family arrived in Hamilton last August and are scheduled to stay for three years. The posting resulted from a joint decision by the United Church of Zambia and the United Church of Canada. Mr. Lumbama said it is sur- prising that a country which sends so many missionaries abroad does not show more signs of Christian influence at home. "I expect to see more going to church, for example, but church-going doesn't seem to be all that popular." He said Canadian church services lack enthusiasm. "When I say a prayer, nobody says amen. You can't tell if they're with you or not. At home everybody joins in. I guess we're a little more spon- taneous, or emotional, if you like." Christianity is rapidly ex- panding in Africa at the same time that church membership is decreasing in North America. Lumbama said. Cranbrook hall open CRANBROOK, B.C. (Special) The Jehovah's Witness congregation held open house here recently marking dedication of their new SH0.090 appraised building on 20th Avenue at South Third Street. With family units from the congregation contributing labor and trades work on the Tudor style Kingdom Hall, and with much donated material, actual cost was held to The auditorium seats, 300. William Bell, leader of the congregation, presided at the dedication ceremony. About a thousand visitors from East Kootenay points and the city inspected the hall dunng the open house. The Herald Religion Calvinettes gain awards Senior awards have been recently presented to members of the Nobleford Calvinettes. Recipients were Cindy Glenda Konynenbelt and Barbara Siray. Junior awards went to Christine Konynenbelt and Terry and Sharon deKreek. The Calvinettes is a program of the Christian Reformed Church designed to develop spiritual character and skills in young girls. Terry Winter plans crusade Vancouver evangelist Terry Winter has announced crusade plans for Calgary later this year. Mr. Winter is scheduled to preach Nov. 1-10, culminating several months of lay preparation. It is anticipated the evangelist will visit Lethbridge for a youth weekend this fall. Deaconess voted president NARAMATA, B.C. (CP) Eleanor Gamble, president- designate of the British Columbia section of the United Church of Canada, is the first woman elected to the post in the 50-year history of the church. Miss Gamble, who was elected here this week during the annual Naramata Conference, is chairman of continuing education for the B.C. section. She serves as deaconess under Rev. E. A. Reynolds at Ryerson United Church, Vancouver. Fastball league formed Fastball players from four local churches have inaugurated an inter-church fastball league. Participating congregations to date are Lakeview Mennonite. Evangelical Free Church, Coaldale Mennonite, and Lethbridge Christian and Missionary Alliance. He said one of the unfortunate aspects of his application was that he was not at liberty to inform his congregation. He was one of 182 applicants for the job. He acknowledges there has been some negative reaction to his appointment. Some of it has come from parishioners "because I think some people still don't see a priest as doing anything outside the parish; they feel that for some reason or other you're going to be lost to the church." Outside the church, there were those who questioned his religious affiliation and clerical background. "This is one thing I'm sure people are going to worry Dr. Ivany said. "As Anglican and clergyman how will I react? I believe this is a fair question. "But I'm not going to be a bigot. With my understanding of philosophy and religion. I think I'm less bigoted than the atheist, who in many ways is very bigoted against those who believe in God. "As for keeping my head above water in the political sense, I've had lots of experience in that because the church is political as well as religious." The new ombudsman stressed he will make full use of his staff. "We're going to work very much as a team, and not myself as a prima donna." The ombudsman deals with complaints from citizens about actions by government departments and agencies a task that involves considerable knowledge of the law. "That's one of the reasons there's a lawyer on the staff." Dr. Ivany said. "George McClellan was not a lawyer, but obviously he had a lot of background in law. "1 can distinguish between legal justice and natural jus- tice." The clergyman said he does not anticipate the new job will change his life-style unduly except that his family will move. As dean of All Saints Cathedral. Dr. Ivany lived in the rectory free of charge. As ombudsman, he will no longer hold the position of dean and rector. The family plans to buy a house. With that added financial responsibility. Dr. Ivany anticipates the ombudsman's salary will leave him with "maybe a year more than I'm earning now." Dr Ivany expects the job of ombudsman will carry frustrations and Oiat he will "have to develop a lot of patience." "I'm not particularly a patient man but I think I have learned that in a face-to-face encounter it's possible to work your way through. "1 think one of the keys is to be available and to meet with people and talk to people." CHRISTIAN TABERNACLE Cor. 5th Ave. and 13th St. S.
