Rev. Don MacDonald, a longtime professor at Newman Theological College, got a wonderful surprise during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity this year.
He received the title of ecumenical Honorary Canon of the Anglican Diocese of Edmonton in recognition of his work on ecumenism.
“As you step down from your role in the Edmonton Anglican-Roman Catholic ecumenical dialogue, I send my love and prayers. Your work and ministry have been exemplary in showing how as followers of Jesus Christ we are all called to be one,” Anglican Bishop Jane Alexander wrote in her letter conferring the honour on Father MacDonald.
