    • Gonna Stick My Sword in the Golden Sand September 15, 2014
      Gonna Stick My Sword in the Golden Sand: A Vietnam Soldier's Story has just been released. The title comes from a stanza of the gospel traditional, Down by the Riverside, with its refrain--"Ain't gonna study war no more." Golden Sand is a bold, dark, and intense retelling of the Vietnam experience through the eyes of an army scout that is […]

      The Catholic Spirit, the official newspaper of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, recently published an article focusing on “the transgender ideology and the church.” Written by Jonathan Liedl with contributions from Maria Wiering, the purpose of this article is to attack what it labels “transgender ideology.” This label, “transgender ideology,” is […]

      To hear the simplistic denial of those who scream out with naiveté “give Trump a chance” as they condemn others engaged in selfless protest against a certain political and social tsunami in the making, is to ignore his life-time public embrace of policies that tens of millions reject as not just destructive, but evil per se. They are not mistaken.Those in st […]

COMPANIONS ON THE JOURNEY

Thanks to Contemplative Catholic once again for the reference to another alternative, inclusive Catholic Eucharistic community: Companions on the Journey.

“Companions on the Journey” describes a group of Roman Catholics and persons from other faith traditions who have gathered as an independent non-hierarchical Eucharistic community since May 1997. Each individual’s faith is derived from his/her experiences of God, immanent and transcendent, and is illuminated by the teachings of Christ and the wisdom of other spiritual traditions.

The community sees itself as open, fluid, inclusive, participatory, hospitable and loving. A sense of friendship, shared values and spirituality continues to grow among us. All may volunteer their help according to their individual talents and abilities. Consensus of the community members guides and determines our decisions.

People of all faiths are welcome at the services, including the Eucharist, the community meetings, social events (picnics, potlucks, etc.), charitable activities and frequent lectures. The people of the Companions community, by mutual desire and to the extent possible, share two to three hours each Sunday morning aimed at supporting each person’s spiritual growth and strengthening our community bonds. This time includes a Eucharistic service with a homily, a social time and, occasionally, an educational program or a community meeting. Children’s liturgies are organized throughout the year. The community celebrates one Sunday and two weekday Masses each week. Fr. Sean O’Laoire, Ph.D., Denise Roy, M.Div., and Fr. Paul Roy, Ph.D. are Spiritual Directors for this self-sustaining group of about 300 persons.
