Fr. Robert-Charles Bengry

Fr. Robert-Charles serves as the Parish Priest at St. John the Evangelist in the historic Inglewood neighbourhood in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He also shepherds a small Gilbertine community currently in formation www.gilbertine.net . An excerpt from St. John’s web-site:

St. John the Evangelist, Calgary, is a traditional Roman Catholic parish of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter where we make a special welcome to Anglicans who are seeking to come home to the Catholic Church. [… …]

For 106 years we were a parish of the Anglican Diocese of Calgary but were received into the full communion of the Roman Catholic Church on 18 December 2011 as a response to Pope Benedict XVI Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum coetibus. We were canonically erected as one of the founding parishes of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St Peter on 4 November 2014.

We are a family-friendly community where God the Holy Trinity is worshipped in the beauty of holiness. St. John’s is both a neighbourhood and a destination parish where the Catholic faith is passed on faithfully to this new generation. We seek, as a Catholic family, to grow together in holiness in the love of God and neighbour.

St. John’s century-old commitment to serving the people of Inglewood and the wider city of Calgary remains as firm as ever. Come and visit us and join our thriving community for worship, fellowship and good works.

 

Jesus Christ asks each one of us to take up our cross and follow Him. We’re also asked to share His Gospel and make disciples of all nations. The Gilbertines in Calgary do that through their particular ministry of prayer, presence and service. What are the ways you do as Jesus asks in your life as a Catholic Christian?

There are so many ways to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in this age of new media (this is one of Fr. Robert-Charles’ attempts at doing so) but of course nothing can replace a one-on-one connexion between a believer and a seeker. Remember all of the good God is bringing about in and through you. Never underestimate His power to bring people to Himself through you.
