What is a retreat?

A retreat is an opportunity to come away from our usual daily lives.  It is an invitation to be refreshed in body, mind and spirit. It is a special time where we seek to find The One who is always seeking us.  This year we are setting aside two times for the community to gather on retreat.

Lenten Retreat: The Journey Within

March 10, 2019

Our speaker for the day will be Sister Margo Ritchie.  Margo is a Sister of St. Joseph whose life has taken her from teaching high school to being a co-director of a home for women in transition, to the work of spiritual direction at a retreat house and lastly to the work of leadership within her congregation.  She cares about making the world a more hospitable place for everyone and learning ways to live more humanly together.

Our Lenten Retreat will begin with a simple lunch in the Parish Hall (1486 Richmond Street).  There is no cost for the day but your RSVP is requested so as to plan for food.  The day will conclude with the 5:00 pm Eucharist in The Chapel at Windermere on the Mount.

The day will be appropriate for parishioners from 14-84 years of age.  A concurrent program will be offered for children in primary school.
