The B.C. Catholic
"The Bible tells us to live in truth and charity but sometimes we get distracted," said Father Stanley Galvon, pastor of Star of the Sea. "So we need voices for the truth."
Coren, the author of Why Catholics are Right and the recently released Heresy: Ten Lies They Spread About Christianity, said he enjoys visiting parishes to talk about the Catholic faith, but wished he could do it more often.
"People assume that it's going to cost a fortune to get me to their speaking events," he said. "But in reality, I don't charge parishes a large speaking fee."
"Coren has the ability to hearken Catholics to the truth," added Father Galvon. He said clergy are sometimes unable to convey a strong message because of the diverse audience of churchgoers on a Sunday. He thinks the peer ministry demonstrated by Coren is important because it shows that all Catholics are called to holiness.
"Be Transformed in Christ" is a free event with Eucharistic Adoration at the event's conclusion. Star of the Sea Parish is located at 2250 150th St. Surrey.
