Meeting monthly in Montreal since 2003, the Theology Breakfast Club (TBC) now gathers around 12-15 committed Christian members each month. An ecumenical spirit has been at the heart of the group since its inception. Its initial members were drawn from either Concordia University’s Department of Theological Studies (broadly Christian, including faculty and students of various Christian confessions) or the Ignatian Centre of Spirituality (in the Jesuit tradition, but welcoming Christians of any denomination). Members take turns hosting a Saturday morning breakfast, and leading the discussion of an article or book chapter on a pre- agreed theological or spiritual topic. Group founder Cathie Macaulay tells unfolds the genesis of the TBC.
