De Margerie Series on Christian Reconciliation and Unity – “Now It Springs Forth: Do You Not Perceive It? Looking for ecumenical movement with fresh eyes.”
The 2021 de Margerie lecture, presented virtually this year, features guest speaker Rev. Canon Dr. Scott Sharman speaking on “Decolonizing Ecumenism.” The lecture will be presented online from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 16, co-hosted by St. Thomas More College (Les & Irene Dubé Chair in Catholic Studies), St. Andrew’s College, and the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism. Dr. Sharman will offer examples that seem to be leading to new life and impetus for a renewed ecumenical movement – an “ecumenical spring” – particularly in the Canadian context.
