illumine

illuminé is a Christian campus ministry that engages culture, one meal at a time.  Young adults from uOttawa, Carleton, Heritage, Algonquin, and many other treks of life gather together each week for a fantastic meal and a chance to feed their body, mind, and soul. 

illuminé hosts Talks, Socials, Film and Theology nights, Book Clubs and many other events.  We learn about the historicity of our faith, reflect on culture and the human condition, and discuss theology, faith traditions, philosophy, and more. Events include

Socials

The best meal you’ll have all week: dinner, dessert, socializing, and an in-depth study.  Dinner starts at 6:00pm and is followed by a topical study. It is a casual atmosphere where people come and go as needed. We wrap up around 8:00 (so that you've got plenty of Friday night left). 

Talks

Designed to demonstrate the relevancy of Christ in both campus life and in our modern culture at large. We strive to bring students from multiple campuses, universities, and colleges together for dialogue and conversation. Past Talks have looked at the intersections between theology and science, faith and pop-culture. Held once a semester on Carleton and uOttawa campuses.

Film and Theology

We believe that the story-telling impulse in humanity reflects the fact that we've been created by The Storyteller, and that any narrative we tell in some way discloses our own stories as humans. Our Film and Theology Nights give us the opportunity to explore how artists reflect these topics and opens up a forum for great discussion.

Book Club

Good books have an amazing ability, not only to tap into what makes us human, but also to change us. Join us as we reflect on, and respond to a wide variety of fiction. Share your perspective and help us find accurate portrayals of human nature and the world we live in. This year we are diving into the world of realism with great works such as Graham Greene's "The Power and the Glory," Jospeh Conrad's "The Secret Agent," and Miguel de Unamuno's "Abel Sanchez."
