Description

Cláudio Carvalhaes

We know from Canada’s history of providing a social safety net that individuals, families and communities often need support to overcome the circumstances that create poverty, addiction, and hopelessness. This requires the physical resources we provide in staffing our direct services, but also requires a change in collective thinking as a society about how to best change the policies and structures that keep people on the margins. Cláudio Carvalhaes will inspire us with his lecture about the moral imperative to act against injustice.

Originally from São Paulo, Brazil, Dr. Carvalhaes is a former shoe shining boy and now is an activist, liturgist, theologian and artist. He has been a voice of liberation among communities of color, an advocate for young adults, and a prophetic presence among those who are pushing the church into the 21st century.

A much sought after speaker, writer, performer, and consultant, Carvalhaes preached at Wild Goose Festival, Festival of Homiletics, and other preaching events. He led worship for the All African Council of Churches in Mozambique, taught at the Global Institute of Theology of the World Communion of Reformed Churches and leads worship and teaches at the Hispanic Summer Program since 2013. In the Fall of 2016 he preached at the Academy of Homiletics. In 2017 spoke at the Jubilee 800 Order of Preachers of the Dominican Order in Rome, Italy and was one of the main speakers at the Societas Liturgica in Belgium.

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Driving:
The Chapel of the Epiphany is located on the south side of Chancellor Boulevard, between Theology Mall and East Mall. Inside the Chancellor Place neighbourhood, it is west of the Iona Building at the intersection of Iona Drive and St. Andrew's Walk.

Parking is very limited - the closest parking is North Parkade located at 6115 Student Union Blvd at UBC. There is limited stall parking on Walter Gage Road.

Public Transit:
There are a number of busses that you should know to help you get to and from UBC. Google Maps is your friend, and so is the Transit App, and you can use either to plan out your trips and get up-to-date information on when your bus should arrive. Check out this page to see where you can catch your required bus on campus.

Some quick tips about bussing:

  • The 99 is a classic bus that will take you to Commercial Drive from UBC along Broadway.

  • The 4 and 44 will get you downtown pretty quickly during the day, and the N17 will get you there at night.

  • If you’re going into Kerrisdale, you can basically take any of the 41, 43, or 480.
