Atheist ‘mega-churches’ are now a thing in the U.S as popularity spreads from U.K. | National Post

Congregational worship for atheists? Really? 

Kind of reminds me of that old 'ecumenical' joke. 'Q) What do you get if you cross a Jehovah's Witness with a Unitarian? A) Someone who knocks on your door for no apparent reason.' It just doesn't seem to make sense on the face of it. After all, isn't one of the big benefits of tossing aside a traditional faith practice that you get to do what you want on Sunday mornings? Wouldn't coming together as a congregation when Christians gather in churches kind of take all the fun out of being able to stay in bed and read the Sunday papers with a hot mug of coffee on the bedside table and a comfortable duvet to snuggle in?

  1. As an atheist and an early riser seven days a week, the idea of being able to sleep in wasn't the reason I stopped going to church. Besides when I was a Catholic, one had the Saturday Vigil mass (some as early as 4:00 which always seemed wrong) and even Sunday evening masses.

    If some atheists need this community then that's fine, but most find it elsewhere in the community at other times and places.

    My Joke. - What do you call an atheist with a wife and 2 kids? A Unitarian.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
