The SGW.OOO centre in west- end Winning was unique in Canada wlicn it was built in 1965 by Hie congregations of St. Ch'd's Anglican parish and John XXIII "Roman Catholic. With impetus from both the church hierarchy ami lumbers ol the congregations, the centre was formed with a spirit of ecun- mctu'sm and a pragmatic need to save money. Three years of inter-dcnomi- national rubbing of shoulders does not apiwar to have caused any friction. have been no real says It. G. Davis, people's warden of St. Chad's. Hugh Delaney, a Catholic and firs; chairman of the centre, says that it is not simply a question of tolerance between Ihc tux> denominations, but a matter of getting along enlhu- siaslically. John XXIII parish has 750 families and St. Chad's 400. The cenlre is governed by a board of directors made up of George Cardinal Flahiff, Archbishop of Winnipeg: Rt. Rev. Barry Val- entine, Anglican Bishop of Ru- pert's Land; the centre's two Institute helping to right wrongs 'Look beyond own noses' JERUSALEM (AP) Chris- ti.-ms should "look beyond their own noses" to pet acquainted with their mother religion-Ju- daism says Dr. G. Douglas Young, His American Institute for Holy Land Studies here is dedicated to just that. ''Our prime mission is to give future Christian leaders a chance to see who are, learn what they believe and what contribu'ions they have made and are Young sjys. He says he views the institute as lumping to right the wrongs that "the Christian Church did to Jews for 2.000 years." The instilute is Uie only American-operated school of Its kind in the Holy City. Located on historic Mount Zion, it serves graduate scholars or junior year-level students who tn study early Christian history, Old and New Testaments, Jew- ish thought and mcdern Israel, archeology and Hebrew. The non-denominational, non- profit Institute, functioning sinct 1953. is governed by a hoard of directors of American businessmen and evangelistic leaders. Yoiuig, a biblical scholar and authority on Semitic culture, is the founder and president of the institute. He is an American cit- I izcn torn in Korea of mission- 1 ary parents. in an interview, he said he was motivated to create the in- stitute dining a visit to Israeli 1 Jenisalem in 1956. "1 found no American insitu- tion tor Christians and I wanted to remedy he said, "The DEDICATE GIDEON BIBLES al a continuing memorial Ph. 337-5322 or 328-4565 PLACED IN HO7EIS, SCHOOLS, HOSPITALS, PRISONS idea struck me as being useful to bring young American Chris- tians over here to tell them about Israel, the Jews, and their relationship to Christian- ity." Young, 61, considers himself politically and theologically as a conservative ''except on the issue of Israel." In a letter reacting to a papal appeal for protection of the holy pieces in Jerusalem, Young said the religions shrines were being better cared for under Israeli control than previously under Jordanian rule. Prisoner ivins his battle ATLANTA, Ga.

Prison officials had claimed the church was only a gather- ing of prisoners. Harry W. Theriault, bishop and founder, contended in his lawsuit that prison attempts to squelch his religion violated his rights under the U.S. Con- stitution. Therifcult told the court he started le church after re- ceiving a mai! order doctor of divinity degree. He says his church pro- motes "the supremacy of being, the splendor of expres- sion and the light of life." priests, and lay people, one from each parish. The centre houses a main chape! with 500 seals, and each congregation hold s separate ervices according to a pre- pared schedule. HARE DEIST In addition, each congregation las its own chapel to accommo- latc small groups of worship- ers. The c-Jiapels are in- erehangeably by both parishes depending on their suitability or such functions as small wed- dings and funerals. Each parish also conducts its own Surcuday school classes, but the congregations combine in soc'.al activities that range from volleyball to bridge. The two parishes also share the debt on mortgage and operat- ing expenses as well as the nec- essary fund-raising activities Lhat go with them. Mr. Delaney says these activi- ties have removed many of the road-blocks tjetween Catholics and Anglicaas at the social level and doctrinal problems are be- ginning to be resolved. Said Mr. Davis: "Maybe some day there will be joint services; every year start doing more and more things to- gether." Canon D. D. Stewart, pastor of St. Chad's, says the centre is going "very, very well1' but he would like to see the congrega- tions operate a little more closely. While there have been no joint sendees since a prayer service of thanksgiving on the centre's opening in Canon Stewart hopes that within a year or two the parishes will begin to hold regular joint worship services. 3 missionaries ivin awards TORONTO (CP) Three prospective missionaries have been awarded Archbishop Owen memorial scholarships, Very Rev.
