The Pope Video – Interreligious Dialogue
TEDxRainier – Interfaith Amigos
Pastor Don Mackenzie, Rabbi Ted Falcon and Imam Jamal Rahman-now known as the Interfaith Amigos-started working together after 9/11. Since then, they have brought their unique blend of spiritual wisdom and humor to audiences in the US, Canada, Israel-Palestine and Japan. Their work is dedicated to supporting more effective interfaith dialogue that can bring greater collaboration to the major social and economic issues of our time.
Karen Armstrong calls their “exuberant and courageous” new book, Religion Gone Astray: What We Found at the Heart of Interfaith, “an inspiration and example for all of us in these sadly polarized times.” Their first book, Getting to the Heart of Interfaith (2009), brought them international attention with coverage from the New York Times, CBS News, BBC Radio, and various NPR programs.

Who We Are
The Madonna House Apostolate is a family of Christian lay men, women, and priests, striving to incarnate the teachings of Jesus Christ by forming a community of love.
We are a “Public Association of the Christian Faithful” within the Roman Catholic Church, under the bishop of the Diocese of Pembroke.
Staff members of Madonna House come from all walks of life, from various countries and cultures, and have a wide variety of personalities and talents. They have in common a desire to serve God in a very humble way of life, as summarized in our Little Mandate. Our spirit is that of a family — modeled on the holy family of Nazareth, which was a community of perfect charity and love.
Our main house, or Training Centre, is located in Combermere, Ontario, Canada. Madonna House also serves many areas throughout the world through our missionary field houses; we serve families through a summer program called Cana Colony, and we serve the general public through our newspaper, our publications, and our volunteer programs.
Founded in 1947 by Catherine Doherty and her husband, Eddie Doherty, today the community has approximately 200 lay men, women, and priests, dedicated to loving and serving Christ through promises of poverty, chastity, and obedience. (And, in addition to our staff priests, there are approximately 100 associate priests, bishops and permanent deacons who strive to live the spirit of Madonna House in their home dioceses or wherever they are serving.)
The Basilian Fathers Contributions to Canadian Education – Canada 150
For the next several months, we Canadians are celebrating 150 years of Canadian Confederation.
And you can’t talk about the Catholic Church’s contribution to Canada over the past 150 years without looking at some of the major educational contributions given to us, by the Congregation of St. Basil also known as the Basilian Fathers.
Join me as I talk to Basilian Father, Fr. James Carruthers about the
sacrifices in manpower and money, as the Basilan Fathers started and grew mission in Canada, helping to form millions of Canadian students since Canadian Confederation over a 150 years ago.
As we celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday it’s only right that we take a moment to recognize the sacrifice, the dedication and the perseverance of the Basilian Fathers without whom, Catholic education in Canada wouldn’t be what it is today.
