An evening of insight, inspiration and entertainment at the Morrin Centre

Finding Balance: personally, relationally, and vocationally is the theme of the evening with Gregory Schroeder of IntegroWellness who asks, “If you could find your balance anywhere in life, where would it be? Balance within, in relationships and at work, is better when we strengthen our vision, character and skill.”

Is it well with your soul?

When I was in seminary, a group of us used to meet once a week, outside of class time, to pray together. Now, you have to realize that we had chapel twice a week at the seminary, plus once a week at McGill, and our regular Sunday worship at whatever church we chose to attend.

This charming cottage located on Grande Allée West, at the corner of avenue Cartier, has retained its original appearance as witnessed by both its exterior and interior decor and the gardens around it.

Euphoria, Elation … and Political Reality

The recent federal election ushered in a host of new faces in the province of Quebec; 59 of the 75 ridings have new incumbents. Since this outcome was quite unexpected, there is a justifiable and understandable feeling of euphoria and elation amongst the winners, all of whom are from the NPD. Quite a feat! Congratulations to them all and good luck in their new lives and responsibilities.
