Ven. Barry Hollowell took an ecumenical approach to his installation as the bishop of the Diocese of Calgary. He was ordained and consecrated in early March at Calgary?s Roman Catholic cathedral, St. Mary?s, before being installed at the Anglican Cathedral Church of The Redeemer. He succeeds Archbishop Barry Curtis.
Harmony the goal
Edmonton was chosen as one of four places in the world to host a major Jewish-Christian-Muslim dialogue. Entitled, What Do I Want Others to Know and Teach About My Faith? it was held in late March in Jerusalem, Louisville, Ky., the Vatican and Edmonton.
Professional and lay leaders were brought together for three days to study each other?s beliefs and practices and respond through discussion to the issues raised. The goal was to increase racial harmony and peace among the nations of the world.
