On Sunday the 26th of January more than 80 clergy and laity gathered at Saint Helen's Roman Catholic Parish in Burnaby for the first of three sessions entitled 'Meet Your Relatives: Grassroots Ecumenism'. This event has arisen after the clergy of the Archdiocese of Vancouver (Roman Catholic) and the Diocese of New Westminster (Anglican) met for a study day two years ago. The ecumenical officers and committees of the two dioceses were charged with crafting an event for laity and clergy to build upon the success of the clergy day.
