History Hour 71 – “The changing face of Canadian Catholics and Canadian Goans” by Fr. Terry Fay SJ held on Thursday, 19th January 2012.

Terry Fay SJ from the University of St Michael’s College of the University of Toronto delivered two short presentations through power-point.

The first presentation tells the changing face of Canadian spirituality, and the second how Canadian Goans fit into Canadian spirituality. The talk reviewed the changes in Canadian spirituality including Catholic social thought, education, feminism, subjective awakening, and national multiculturalism.

The second presentation revealed how Goans through their social and athletic groups, the formation of GOA, its outreach to new arrivals, the democratization of GOA, its cultural and artistic activities, and creating the International Goan Organization have contributed to the changing face of Canadian spirituality.
