Holy Week Retreat
Guelph, ON — Apr 1 - 9, 2023
The 8-day Holy Week begins Saturday evening, April 1 and ends on Easter Sunday. It has its origin in the dramatic liturgies of the Jerusalem Church: the procession with palms; the passion narratives; veneration of the cross; and the Easter Vigil, with its focus on light in darkness, and rebirth through the water of baptism.
Understanding and Praying with The Mystics
Pickering, ON — May 26 - 28, 2023
The word mystic calls up images of someone whose prayer life is out of our reach, although there were mystics who could levitate, bilocate, or had some other unique God-given gift, most mystics however, were persons like you and me who just had a deep desire to grow in a closer union with God and were persons who gradually grow into a deep reflective life; a life of prayer and discernment in everyday life.
