The Lord's Distant Vineyard by Vincent J. McNally
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, along with other clergy, ventured into the far west to convert the Natives and minister to European settlers in the mid 1800s. Reverend Dr McNally critically examines the Oblate evangelisation of the Natives through reductions and residential schools, and the development of a Catholic community for Euro-Canadian settlers in British Columbia. His insightful analysis of the Oblate establishment in 'far western Canada' also places it in the context of the history of the province and that of the Catholic Church. McNally doesn't hesitate to ask: Does the Church have a future in Canada?
