2017 CCCB Forum for Canadian national Catholic movements and associations
The 2017 Forum for Canadian national Catholic movements and associations was held in Châteauguay, Quebec, at Manoir D’Youville, 6-8 October 2017. Hosted every three years by the Standing Committee for Relations with Catholic Movements and Associations of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), this provides a unique opportunity for national Catholic organizations to share and discuss their activities and charisms with one another and with the Bishops on the Standing Committee. This year, the theme was “Co-workers in the vineyard”. The gathering brought together representatives from over 25 national Catholic organizations from across Canada who engaged in three major discussions: the formation of leaders in the Church, the different faces of social, material and spiritual poverty present in Canada, and the use of social media in the Church’s mission of evangelization.
