Being With Our Sorrow

SoulStream Presents:

Being With Our Sorrow: A Lenten Retreat Day

This event is officially cancelled. Anyone who has already registered will be contacted by the coordinator regarding a refund.

The season of Lent is a good time to turn toward the sorrow in our life. During this retreat day, we hope to bring our sorrow and grief out of isolation where many of us keep it and turn toward it with the softest hands possible.

Join us for a prayerful day where reflection, art, music and a communal ritual invite a kind welcome to some of the sorrow we hold in our hearts. There will be times of silence, personal reflection and an invitation to share.

DATE/TIME: Saturday March 28, 2020 from 9:30 am – 3:15 pm
LOCATION: St Lawrence Anglican Church, 5940 Lakeview Dr SW, Calgary, AB
COST: $50.00 (includes tea, coffee & snacks. Please bring a bag lunch)
