Catholics and Evangelicals

Catholics and Evangelicals
Events such as World Youth Day have allowed evangelicals to better understand Roman Catholics and their beliefs

Barry Farndon is proof that evangelicals and Catholics are getting along better in Canada. Farndon, a staff sergeant with the Ontario Provincial Police, was seconded to the World Youth Day security task force during the Pope’s visit to Canada in July. "God wanted me here for a reason," says Farndon. He and his wife Cathy attend an Evangelical Missionary church in Markham, just north of Toronto.

"The World Youth Day is a positive reality. Many aspects of the program feel like an evangelical youth event," Farndon said. "I don’t agree with all Catholic teachings, but I don’t focus on the differences." He put in long hours to ensure the safety of John Paul II and the massive crowds at the Catholic festival. He said he would not volunteer to provide security for a cult group. He regards many Catholics as fellow Christians.

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
