Canadian Catholicism, and Goans in Canada (a talk in Porvorim)
Terry Fay SJ from the University of St Michael's College of the University of Toronto will tell two stories in a power-point presentation. The first
story tells the changing face of Canadian spirituality, and the second story how Canadian Goans fit into Canadian spirituality. The talk reviews the changes
in Canadian spirituality including Catholic social thought, education, feminism, subjective awakening, and national multiculturalism.
The second story looks at how Goans through their social and athletic groups, the formation of GOA, its outreach to new arrivals, the democratization of
GOA, its cultural and artistic activities, and creating the International Goan Organization have contributed to the changing face of Canadian spirituality.
