Event description
“Really Good Christians – they go Easter and Christmas.” Understanding Occasional Religious Practice in Canada with Dr. Sarah K. Johnson

About this event

Many Canadians are occasionally religious: they attend religious services occasionally rather than routinely and usually do so in connection with specific types of occasions, such as holidays, life transitions, and times of crisis. In this lecture, Sarah Kathleen Johnson introduces her concept of occasional religious practice and explores its implications. Who are occasional practitioners? Why do they attend on these occasions? What can be learned from occasional practitioners about Christian worship?

Two viewing options: In-person and livestream

COVID-19 Notice: The in-person offering of this event will follow all BC goverment requirements and guidelines for indoor organized gatherings.

About the Community of St. Mark’s at the University of British Columbia

The community of St. Mark's (St. Mark's/Corpus Christi College and St. Mark's Parish) is steeped in a rich legacy of faith, the result of more than ninety years of continuous Catholic presence at the University of British Columbia. This presence arises from the vision of our founders, the Basilian Fathers, who for many years taught in the university’s academic divisions, helped shape its athletic tradition and served its Catholic chaplaincy. Located on the campus of Saint Mark’s College, St. Mark’s Parish is now served by the Jesuit Fathers, who labour together with the Office of Campus Life and Ministry to build up the sacramental and intellectual life of our community. We strive to support the development of students as whole persons, prepared to make their contributions to the world. Our public outreach efforts strengthen our role as the Catholic centre at the University of British Columbia, and our commitment to serving as a catalyst for thoughtful consideration of faith leading to understanding at both the university and in the broader community.
