On November 30th, the ESCC and the Office for English Pastoral Services are co-hosting a public lecture by the well-known Canadian sociologist, Dr. Reginald Bibby. Dr. Bibby holds the Board of Governors Research Chair in the Department of Sociology at the University of Lethbridge and the author of numerous books which examine trends in Canadian society. He has spent his academic career monitoring, speaking and writing about these trends, particularly regarding youth and religion. In 2016, he co-authored with Angus Reid the book Canada’s Catholics. The title of Dr. Bibby’s November 30th talk is, Being Pro-Religious, Low Religious, and No Religious in Montreal: A Mirror of Canada & the World and will draw on material from his most recent book, Resilient Gods, which is the fifth in his “Gods” series which has tracked developments in religious practice and belief in Canada.
