Becoming a seafarers' chaplain was not exactly his retirement plan - CatholicPhilly.com

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

These 20-foot or 40-foot containers, thousands aboard every ship, carry “anything from specialty cars to furniture to televisions,” said Deacon Dileep. “The laptop you own, they didn’t fly it here. It wasn’t manufactured in Canada or the United States. It was manufactured in Korea or China somewhere.” Though seafarers provide a bridge to the world, they are disconnected. Only recently has WiFi become readily available on board, and, inspectors aside, Deacon Athaide may be the only visitor these sailors entertain for months. The men usher Deacon Athaide through the galley and into the officers’ mess, where the higher-paid crew gather to eat. The cook’s assistant quickly distributes a few water bottles and soon brings out lunch: fried noodles, fresh salad, and a sausage-egg-meatloaf combination. Whenever he meets a crew member, Deacon Athaide asks: “How are you? Is everything OK?” The response is often ” fine,” but he’s ready to listen, say a prayer, and offer consolation any time a serious situation arises. In just three years, several have. “About six months ago, a chief cook died a day before coming here.” The man, practically in sight of the port, had run out of critical medication too soon. Another time, a chief engineer had a heart attack and died at sea, also one day before his Vancouver arrival. In both cases, Deacon Athaide offered to bless the ship with holy water and prayed for the men who were traumatized after the deaths. “If they were at home, they would be at Mass with their family, with their kids,” he said. “That’s why I like to wear my collar. It’s that comfort level, and it reminds them if they have forgotten that, they can still practice their faith.” “Port ministry is not just saying Mass on a ship, much like how campus ministry isn’t just saying Mass in the campus chapel … it is a pastoral ministry.” Spending his free time on cargo ships wasn’t exactly Deacon Athaide’s retirement plan. A man of many interests, Deacon Athaide has been a geologist, professor, labor leader, and even a thoroughbred horse owner. Chaplaincy came as a surprise. Born in a devout Catholic suburb of Mumbai, India, he was deeply rooted in his faith from a young age. He would pray the rosary with his family every day, but did not consider becoming a priest and had never heard of permanent deacons. He was 14 when his family immigrated to Canada in 1964. “Montreal was super Catholic at the time. We came to a Montreal where, if you were five minutes late for church, you couldn’t find a seat.” As a young adult, he had a heart for service. When he noticed a trend of young adults traveling overseas to do mission work, he founded the Communitas International Volunteer Society. The registered Canadian charity sent volunteers to a developing country for one year at a time, and it was while traveling with his organization that he met his wife. He and Malvina, a nurse, raised three children. When their youngest was only 7, Malvina was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She died in 2004. In 2011, Archbishop J. Michael Miller released a letter to announce he was restoring the permanent diaconate in the Archdiocese of Vancouver. Permanent deacons, he wrote, would have a theology degree and run a variety of parish and other ministries, including being allowed to officiate at marriages and funerals and preach homilies. Deacon Athaide talked to his pastor about it. “I remember him saying: ‘Go for it!’ It seemed to be a natural kind of thing and a great opportunity. I had lost my wife seven years prior, and I got to a stage where I realized I’m probably not going to get married again. It seemed like a natural opportunity.&#...

Hockey legend to lie in state Friday - BlackburnNews.com

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

NHL renamed their Lester Pearson Award after Lindsay. A 1995 TV film, Net Worth, chronicled Lindsay’s activism. Lindsay later worked as a TV commentator, doing play-by-play on local television for the New York Rangers, then analysis for NBC. He was the centre of one of the few bright spots of the so-called “Dead Wings” era of the 1970s and early 1980s. He became the Wings’ general manager in 1977, and the following season Detroit made the playoffs for the first time since 1969. He also served as head coach of the Wings at the start of the 1980-81 season. The NHL is also joining the Red Wings in tribute to Lindsay. For games played through Sunday, all 31 NHL arenas will display Lindsay’s #7 on their arena boards. From March 7th through March 10th, rink boards in all 31 NHL arenas will feature this tribute to Ted Lindsay in honor of his incredible career, trailblazing spirit and love of the game. #RIP7 @NHLPA @TedLindsay07 pic.twitter.com/YFMffwxKxw - NHL (@NHL) March 6, 2019 PREVIOUS NEXT Let's block ads!

Fire deaths could prompt new safety measures, upgraded building code: experts - Burnaby Now

Saturday, March 02, 2019

Mike Holmes, one of Canada's leading contractors and a well-known television host, said Monday new homes should be built with fire-resistant products to slow down the spread of a fire. Holmes said older homes were built with hardwoods and older lumber with tighter grains that are more resistant to "flame spread." He said the young wood used in new homes is more flammable. "We can build with wood, we just need to treat it," he said. "We have products that can treat it, there is a pink spray, there is a blue spray, there are sprays that can help reduce the risk of a flash burn." Holmes said building codes are a minimum standard, and that homeowners could demand higher standards, including fire-resistant products, from builders. "We tend to not pay attention to things until there is a catastrophe," he said. "This should be a wake up call that we need to take things more seriously." Holmes said without the use of more fire-resistant materials and products, sprinkler systems may be an option for some homeowners. "I don't want to introduce more plumbing in a home that I'm trying to keep dry," he said. "However, if we're not going to use fire-resistant products maybe we should enforce a sprinkler system ... to build a home that just won't burn like that house did." Rizcallah said the Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes examined residential sprinklers about a year ago. "Sprinklers will reduce the risk of injury and fire loss and potentially fatalities in homes based on what we know and what we've seen," he said. Still, he said the commission found there wasn't enough evidence to mandate sprinklers in all new homes, though sprinkler standards were created. The first national building code was issued in 1940, and Rizcallah said it's updated every five years based on the latest research and technology. Although he said homes are significantly safer than they were 20 years ago, he said homeowners should take precautions, including having interconnected smoke alarms on every floor of a house, limiting combustibles, and having a fire exit plan. Rizcallah said the latest building code requires smoke alarms in every bedroom and on every level of a home. The Barho family arrived in Canada 18 months ago as Syrian refugees. The fire last Tuesday claimed the lives of teenager Ahmad; Rola, 12; Mohamad, 9; Ola, 8; Hala, 3; Rana, 2; and Abdullah, who was born in Canada on Nov. 9. The children's father, Ebraheim Barho, remained in hospital recovering from extensive burns. Their mother, Kawthar Barho, emerged from seclusion Saturday for a public funeral attended by 2,000 people. Let's block ads! (Why?)...
