YOUCAT on Tap: Who is God?

Friday November 7th @ 5:30 PM

So an Atheist and a Theists walked into a bar and had a debate about the existence of God. They agreed that God was a supreme being, or distant cosmic entity who governs, and dominates the world. The Atheist concluded that he does not believe in this God, and the theist concluded that she does. Overhearing this conversation was the bartender, who also happens to be a Catholic priest. He politely informed both of them that they were wrong about who God is. To which they responded, “So who is God?”

Join us this Friday as we address this and other related questions. Among other things we will be looking at philosophical arguments for Gods for God’s existence. Beer and pizza will be provided.


Come out and enjoy some comforting beef stew and company to keep the chill out of your bones. Dinner will begin at 6 pm and is 5$ as usual. Dessert will be served as part of our Fall Coffeehouse, happening later in the evening. If you have questions or comments or want to sign up for a weekend, email!

Kickoff weekend for the Year of Consecrated Life

Come and discover more about consecrated life with the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Same, the oldest religious group in the city and a fundamental part of the old colony. There will be prayer, testimony, music, snacks, and more! The afternoon begins at 1:30, ending at 4 pm on the 30th of this month. The Sisters are hosting us all at their Mother House, 2330 Sherbrooke, at the Atwater intersection. There will be a group heading over from the Newman Centre at 1 pm should you wish to join.

Pastoral Home Care

Interested in giving to those who are sick or elderly in your community? If so, you are very much needed to bring spiritual/ or religious support by visiting them in their homes (because spiritual needs touch the spirit of the person, and are linked with our sense of meaning and belonging in our relationship to our fundamental values or a higher being). There will be a talk on Pastoral Home Care, what it’s all about, and about the training sessions that we are about to have in Pastoral Home Care come January. The talk will be given by the Cathie Macaulay, who is the coordinator of Pastoral Home Care with the Archdiocese of Montreal (who will also be in charge of the training program later on). We really hope you will be able to make it, despite the rush of midterms (or life in general).

Where? Newman Centre of McGill University (3484 Peel St., Montreal, Quebec H3A 3T6)

When? Thursday

What time? 7.30 in the PM

Sandwiches for the Homeless

We are having more of Sandwiches for the Homeless and you are cordially invited (or not so cordial, but still very much invited) to join us in spreading the joy and goodness of food all around downtown Montreal. Now, especially with the winter coming, we may also be giving out articles of clothing to hopefully help keep our lovelies around Montreal warm.

Just like the last time and forever will be, details as follows:

PREPARATION = 12:00 – 1:00 pm

DISTRIBUTION = 1:00pm – 2:00pm

WHERE? Newman Centre – along Peel just below its intersection with Docteur-Penfield. and of course all round downtown Montreal.

We also take DONATIONS of food, bottled water and some small warm articles of clothing (proper clothes guys, like socks, mittens, yada yada-be creative). Feel free to fill in the Google Doc that can be found on our Facebook page right here.

P.S. the preparation and distribution is by no means a block activity, feel free to pop in and out of the separate events, if you aren’t too comfortable with going out into the streets of Montreal, we would love your help with preparation or will take donations and vice versa or any way around (you get the drift)
