Paul Wattson Seminar

Monday, November 5, 2018
2 p.m.
AST - St. Columba Chapel
634 Francklyn Street, Halifax, NS

Guest Speaker: Archbishop Donald Bolen of Regina

The seminar normally takes place prior to the Paul Wattson evening lecture.


This seminar is brought to Halifax by the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement, and AST is pleased to be a sponsor, in cooperation with Saint Mary's University. The seminar and evening lecture honour the memory of the Rev. Paul James Francis Wattson, S.A. (1863-1940), founder of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement and pioneer for the cause of Christian unity. Begun in 1974 at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., the lectures were expanded to the University of San Francisco in 1980 and in 1995 to AST. These lectures bring in an international leader in the field of ecumenism to speak on a current ecumenical topic. Because of its long history of ecumenical cooperation, AST was selected by the Atonement Friars as the Atlantic Canadian venue for this series.
