An upcoming event organized by Evangelicals and Pentecostals calls for a unity among all Christians.
VoicesTogether is a multi-Christian worship and prayer event on July 1 at the Pacific Coliseum. “This year is the third consecutive event,” said Marjeta Bobnar. “It’s a step forward in local Christian unity.” 
“I am the only Catholic there, as [the core] is comprised of mostly different Pentecostal churches,” states Bobnar, who is part of the core team running the event, and also the coordinator for ecumenical and interfaith relations for the RCAV.
The style of praise at Voices Together is influenced heavily by the Pentecostal worship, which is very energetic. Bobnar noted that compared to the traditional Catholic worship, “the worship is very different.”

“It’s very loud,” she laughed. “To see how other churches worshipped was good. Being raised a Catholic, this was a learning moment …to see my brothers and sisters in faith.”

Bobnar noted the similarities to the Catholic Charismatic approach to prayer. “It is in a sense very encouraging. It was an opening [of perspective].”

“If we’d like to achieve Christian unity, we have to work for it.”

The Voices Together event will be held at the Pacific Coliseum from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12, and are available here. For more, contact Bobnar at 604-683-0281 ext. 50425 or
