Adventure in ecumenism success in first year HALIFAX (CPl The Atlan- tic School of Theology here graduated 17 candidates for the prieslliood and ministry May 3, first products of what has been variously described as an ad- venture in ecumenism and a real hope for the future life of the church. Three Catholic, United Church and An- Uie resources ol three formerly- autonomous schools to form the institution. No mere confederation, it has one board of governors, one fac- ulty, one cu student body. Rev. Lloyd Robertson, a Roman Catholic and the school's first principal, says Ihe first year was "a good year and one that has proved you can carry on theological education and prepare people for the min- istry in one school." purpose- ''to train men and women lor the various minis- tries in Uic Atlantic provinces of Canada." The job made easier with the acceptance of the endeavor the community. Many are "encouraged by the fact that something as important as theo- logical education can be done ecumenically." Such encouragement is ex- pected to be reflected in enrol- nienl.s in September, 19T2. Father Koberlson expects a slight increase in candidates studying for the ordainjd minis- try or priesthood. The school is contemplating evening classes "to open the ranks to more Inily" and he expects applica- tion from laity and clergy alike for courses taken on the basis of "continuing education." For Ihe effort, Father Robert- son ond Most Rev. James M. IJayes, Archbishop of Halifax, have a special blessing of tho Pope. It was conveyed by Dr. Ralph Chalmers, a faculty member and a United Churchman, fol- lowing a recent special audienca with the Pope in Rome. "His Holiness seemed to know something of our school when Dr. ami Mrs. Chalmers sputa with said Father Robert- son.

Father Robertson says the spirit of ecumenism since the school's doors opened in Sep- tember resulted in many stu- dents becoming so joyous with their study tasks they often for- got that "we joined the efforts of three schools and not three churches." Unity, he adds, unfortunately cannot be manufactured, "you have to in it."

Most institutions such as the churches, universities, the med- ical and legal professions, sys- tems of justice and government are under attack today. "It's that kind of he said. This opposition v-'as seen by the church as a challenge to "reassess itself, its functions and priorities." He said perhaps the church has been "parading under false colors" and has not been as strong as it made itself out us be. "If we have half a million people who are really honest to goodness dedicated members of Ihe church, then that's pretty good. But paper we have over a million adult communi- cant members." Dr. Long viewed the scarcity of recruits for the ministry as a theological question. "Maybe we are not demand- ing the commitment there ought to be and perhaps we are better off with fewer numbers but more dedicated people." CHURCH OF CHRIST 2720 21st Ave. S.
