On behalf of the Roman Catholic Church, and in particular of its Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, I send heartfelt greetings to all of you gathered for this 16th meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council.This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the historic meeting between His Grace Archbishop Michael Ramsey and Blessed Pope Paul VI. A direct fruit of that meeting was the Joint Preparatory Commission which in turn led to the establishment of the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC), now in its third phase. We give thanks for those ground-breaking steps taken fifty years ago, which have greatly improved our mutual understanding and the warm friendship that has grown between our two communions.Working in tandem with ARCIC and, indeed, building upon its achievements, we now have a second commission jointly sponsored by the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and the Anglican Communion Office. The International Anglican-Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission (IARCCUM) works for the reception of ARCIC, that the agreements made between us will have a real transforming impact on our ecclesial life in dioceses across the world. The commission is made up of pairs of bishops, one Anglican and one Catholic, from each Anglican Province and corresponding Episcopal Conference where our two communities exist in significant numbers. The task of these bishops is to promote joint initiatives, particularly in mission and witness, and to be advocates of collaboration between our two communities.We will mark the fiftieth anniversary of Archbishop Ramsey’s meeting with Pope Paul with a meeting of these IARCCUM bishops. During this meeting the bishops will share their experiences and pastoral challenges, and strategize as to how our two communions can work together more closely in ecumenical witness to the world. This fiftieth anniversary celebration is one full of hope, therefore, and one that looks to the future. I ask for your prayers for this initiative, that it will bear much fruit and carry us towards the unity for which Christ prayed.Our theological dialogue has produced some very important agreements. A key theme recognised very early in its history, was the ecclesiology of communion. The co-chairmen noted the prominence of this theme in their preface to ARCIC I’s Final Report. ARCIC II devoted a whole document to it, and built upon the theme further in subsequent documents. God, through the missions of the Son and Spirit, has invited us into the communion of the most holy Trinity, and communion with God implies communion with one another. To respond with faith to God’s gracious invitation, always demands that we attend with care to the relationships between ourselves. Living in communion means that the wellbeing of each is the concern of all. And when we live this communion well we offer a vision to our world of the communion God wills for all of His creation.This meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council is an important moment in your living of communion, and therefore of the witness that you, as Anglicans, give to others. Across the world and between different continents and cultures, there are profound differences in our understanding of the human person and morals. Christian communities with a worldwide reach such as yours can provide an example of how to talk and, most especially, how to listen across these cultural and regional differences. I am reminded of the words Pope Francis addressed to the fathers of the extraordinary Synod of bishops in 2014. He invited them both to speak honestly and to “listen with humility and welcome, with an open heart”. As Archbishop Welby has said, we need to show the world how to “disagree well”, which is to say, to disagree while listening with respect and care to the other. To “disagree well” means that we start from the presumption of goodwill: that each member of the communion is, in his or her context, trying to respond to the gospel summons with honesty and generosity; that divergent positions are reached with integrity. Finally, to “disagree well” means that we never give up in our search for agreement, but that we strive for to find a better and a larger consensus. Our very disagreement shows us just how much we need one another. It shows that I cannot, in the specificity of my culture and context, discern God’s will and His truth alone. It is the whole of His people that God guides on its pilgrim way and leads into truth. In our search for God we rely upon one another.All our effort in seeking Christian unity is based upon this careful, generous listening, a necessary virtue for all God’s faithful people. Our ecumenical endeavour is one of attending to our communion relationships even when our communion is partial or damaged. This meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council, very much like our own recent synods of bishops, requires the virtue of careful and generous listening.My prayer for you as participants of this 16th Anglican Consultative Council is the same as my prayer for all your four of the instruments of communion: that through the exercise of each; that through faithful listening to the Lord in the scriptures; and by careful listening to each other, the bonds of the communion between the Provinces will be strengthened and deepened.Yours in Christ,Kurt Cardinal Koch Submit a Press Release ACC16, Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY last_img read more

He has also promoted engineering among first and second level students by visiting schools with an innovative and interactive presentation.“Although my work title is a lecturer, I considered myself a teacher – they are very different roles. LIT gives me the opportunity to teach in small group numbers, which is so important for the teaching and learning of today’s students I believe,” he said.The patron of the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, which established the awards in partnership with the Union of Students in Ireland (USI), is former President, Professor Mary McAleese.Speaking of the winners, she said: “Excellence in teaching is about much more than simply getting students through their exams. It is about inspiration, passion, generosity of spirit, and a genuine desire to make a positive difference to students’ lives.”Education Minister Jan O’Sullivan said she looked forward to the awards becoming an integral part of the teaching and education calendar.“Any celebration of excellence is worthwhile and to be welcomed but these innovative awards are doubly so in that they not only recognise marvellous teachers but give their students a voice in that process at the same time. All of us involved in the education system want to see the best outcomes for students; not just in the form of results or career paths but in terms of their overall experience and its impact on them as people,” concluded Minister O’Sullivan.

SMC students visit areas of campus featured in book of ghost stories

first_imgThirteen years after the publication of “Quiet Hours,” a collection of ghost stories taking place in various locations across Saint Mary’s campus, the Student Activities Board (SAB) held a tour Thursday for students to hear the book’s different stories in the buildings where they were reported to have occurred. SAB member Sinead Hickey said “Quiet Hours” was published in 2002 and written by Saint Mary’s alumnae Shelly Houser, Veronica Kessenich and Kristen Matha. While they were students, they interviewed hundreds of staff, faculty and local residents to put together a collection of stories of different sightings and happenings that transpired on campus. “All the stories are about occurrences which happened on our campus,” Hickey said. “This book is not only fun, but it also gives us a little insight into the history and identity of our school.”Hickey said the entertainment committee of SAB planned this tour as their main Halloween event.“This is a fun opportunity for students on campus because it is an option for a non-drinking Halloween event. You can have fun without a drink,” Hickey said. “It is a fun way to learn about the ghosts on campus and campus history. “Part of the Saint Mary’s identity is the ghosts present on campus.” The tour started in the south lounge of Regina Hall, Hickey said. Participating students received a map, which showed three of the dorms on campus — Regina Hall, Le Mans Hall and Holy Cross Hall — where members of SAB were stationed. Students then went to the three locations and SAB members read the corresponding stories in “Quiet Hours” that took place in each specific hall.In Regina Hall, students heard stories about pianos that played without anyone touching them, doors found inexplicably opened when they were originally locked and mysteriously rippling water in the pool that used to be in the building’s courtyard. Afterwards, students proceeded to Holy Cross Hall. This dorm was the first building of the College and was previously Saint Mary’s Academy. The book tells stories about a mysterious sighting of a young nun and a large dog in front of the building during a time when only a single, older nun wore a habit, and no nuns owned a dog. The book also notes occurrences of noises being heard in the bathrooms — especially those on the third floor — that sounded like people brushing their teeth or showering when no one was actually there.Sophomore Mackenzie Griffin, who participated in the tour, said she believes the stories.“I definitely think the ghosts stories on campus are real,” Griffin said. “I haven’t experienced anything, but there is a lot going on in the bathrooms in Holy Cross. You’ll hear people walk in and do their nightly routines, but there’s nobody there.”The last stop on the tour was Le Mans Hall, where students heard the stories of people from building services finding a child’s hand print on a window, security staff feeling a cold chill in the un-airconditioned Stapleton Lounge and a student seeing a man in Queen’s Court — reportedly one of the most haunted hallways in the building — run past her and through a wall during her nightly rounds as a Resident Assistant.
