Archangel (pronounced /ˌɑrk.ˈeɪndʒəl/) is a term meaning an angel of high rank. Archangels are found in a number of religious traditions, including Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Michael and Gabriel are recognized as archangels by Judaism and by most Christians. The book of Tobit mentions Raphael, who is also considered by some to be an archangel; Tobit is recognized in the Catholic and Orthodox versions of the Bible, but considered apocryphal by Protestants. The archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael are venerated in the Roman Catholic Church with a feast on September 29 (formerly March 24 for Gabriel and 24 October for Raphael). The named archangels in Islam are Gabriel, Michael, Raphael and Azrael. Other traditions have identified a group of seven Archangels, the names of which vary, depending on the source.

Students from the affiliated colleges may be eligible for bursary assistance if they are properly registered candidates for ministry. Information about church requirements and the professional year should be sought from the appropriate colleges.
One biblical language, usually Greek, is required by some of the colleges. Ministerial candidates should consult with their college advisors regarding biblical language requirements.
Prospective candidates for ordination with a BA Honours or a Major in Religious Studies and a CGPA of 3.3 (B+) may apply for the STM degree followed upon completion by the professional year (IMY).

Jay Bakker – A Love That Restores
Jay is right: a revolution is taking place. And it’s a revolution of grace, affecting our view of God, our view of ourselves, and our view of neighbor, stranger, enemy, and outcast. As I read this honest and challenging book, I kept thinking, “Sign me up for the revolution!” ( Brian McLaren, speaker, activist and author of A New Kind of Christianity )
“With Fall to Grace, Jay Bakker has written just the book that Christians on both sides of our tragically polarized faith need to read. Relying on both his own personal experience and a thoughtful and theological reading of the New Testament, he reminds us of the very core of the gospel. And, in so doing, he challenges me to reconsider the Apostle Paul, the biblical writer with whom I most often wrestle. This book deserves a wide readership.” (Tony Jones, author of The New Christians: Dispatches from the Emergent Frontier and the theologian-in-residence at Solomon’s Porch in Minneapolis )
At the age of only 11 his parents’ global PTL ministry was engulfed by scandal and undermined by Christian backbiting -all of which played out in the 24-hour news media.
Disillusioned, Bakker turned to drugs and alcohol and left his childhood beliefs behind. But along the way, an interesting thing happened: Bakker came to understand, through his personal challenges and suffering (as well as the help of some friends), what God’s grace was really all about.
In this book Bakker explores the true nature of grace–what it means for everyday living and the hot-button issues of our day. With disarming humility, poignant observations, and spot-on theology, Bakker both challenges Christians to reassess their understanding of salvation and encourages non-believers to see Jesus with fresh eyes.

Red Light District
[previous] :: [next]
After passing through the north gates of Chinatown on blvd St-Laurent you will enter a noticeably seedier part of the city. This is the part of Downtown is generally known as the Red Light District (I’ve also heard it referred to as the “tenderloin” for some reason, I’m sure the French probably have some good names for it too). The area is well known as a good place to get any sort of drug, prostitute, or poutine desired. Cheap import stores are also in high abundance slightly further north on St-Laurent. The lines are blurred and gentrification is blurring them further but most would agree that it is in a small area between St-Urbaine to the west, Chinatown to the south, Sherbrooke to the north and parc Berri (which is its own article) to the east with the intersection of Ste-Catherine and St-Laurent as its centre.
This area will likely undergo some major changes in the coming years. Montreal has recently been experiencing varying levels of gentrification, especially along blvd St-Laurent. As a result, this area is prime real-estate, it pretty much has it all; cheap rentals on two of Montreal’s most important streets, it’s right downtown and is close to Chinatown, Vieux-MontrÃ©al, The Plateau and the Gay Village. It is also in the centre of the Quartier des spectacles which is somewhat of a branding scheme by the city to lump all the show bars and concert halls in the area into one marketable location (there are others such as the Quartier du MusÃ©e in the west end of Downtown). Many “improvements” to the area are planned to make it more appealing to tourists and suburbanites not so accustomed to the grittiness who want take in a play or concert. It will be interesting but probably also quite infuriating to see what changes the city and developers will make
This section of St-Laurent (just north of Chinatown) is well known for seedy strip bars, burger joints, and porn theatres. It also has a small collection of building facades with nothing behind them.
The new National Library of Quebec has instituted a policy of giving library cards only to those with 2 pieces of valid ID containing a Quebec residence. This new policy excludes thousands of homeless individuals from Quebec’s largest free access point for the Internet and Information Technology.

Medical movers & shakers: African-American women are on the front lines of improving health care
- Growing up in Nigeria, Olufunmilayo Falusi Olopade, M.D., was urged by her father, a minister, to become a doctor. “He realized that the health of his congregation was poor” says Dr. Olopade. “He kept encouraging me. He saw a need among our people. That floats what I do.”
Honoring her father’s wishes, she studied medicine in Africa and later in the United States. Today she is director of the Center for Clinical Cancer Genetics in the Department of Medicine at the University of Chicago Hospital.
Inside one of her two labs that are stocked to capacity with rubber gloves and test tubes, Dr. Olopade has been advancing the area of cancer genetics through tireless research to find out why Black women develop breast cancer earlier than White women. Nixing the idea that the cause may be environmental factors such as poverty and lack of health care, she determined that Black women developed a more aggressive type of breast cancer, which she bases on genetic factors. Dr. Olopade also challenged the long-held belief that breast cancer is one single disease. “Now that we know why some women are so much more likely to get breast cancer, we can do something about it,” says Dr. Olopade, who is working with doctors in Nigeria to study the gene in African women.
The groundbreaking research earned Dr. Olopade the MacArthur Foundation’s genius award of $500,000–money that will help her continue her work here and in Africa.
President Barack Obama has announced his intention to appoint a Nigerian-born Chicagoan, Dr. Olufunmilayo Falusi Olopade as a member, National Cancer Advisory Board.
MAYBE THE JEWISH GENERAL HOSPITAL SHOULD INVITE HER TO SPEAK IN MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA? ~ Vaq
Weekend to End Women’s CancersTM benefiting the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital is an evolution of our historic journey for all women. During one amazing weekend, August 27-28, 2011, thousands will join together to walk the epic 2-Day or amazing new 1-Day distance, united in the battle against all women’s cancers. All Walkers will be fully supported with regular Pit Stops, hydration, food and medical care–should it be needed. It’s a massive undertaking, and that’s why participation is more critical than ever. The Weekend was built upon the courageous efforts by everyday people, transforming a small grassroots effort into one of Canada’s biggest difference-making endeavours for all women. Weekend funds support the critical work of the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital and their efforts to end breast and gynecologic cancers, diseases that one in seven Canadian women will be diagnosed within her lifetime. Together we can help impact the lives of thousands throughout Montreal and across Canada; each step that we take leads us closer to a cure for both breast and gynecologic cancers. One Weekend truly can make a lifetime of difference.

Located in the heart of Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe in Oakville, ON, the TDL Group Corp.’s Head Office is housed in what was once the original Tim Hortons warehouse. In the 1970’s, the warehouse relocated across the street, which allowed the vacant building to be converted into a Tim Hortons restaurant with adjoining offices. Today the building is used solely for office space and has grown from less than 10,000 square feet on one floor, to over 73,000 square feet over three floors and is home to more than 700 corporate employees – an expansion which parallels the growth the Tim Hortons chain. In Oakville, the Head Office buildings include: the National Training Centre, Corporate Restaurants and the Innovation Centre. Most major departments are based out of our Oakville offices.
