DATE/TIME: Friday, November 6, 7:00 pm to Sunday, November 8, noon (PST).

  • Four 30 minute group input sessions
  • Six 45-60 minute periods for assigned personal prayer
  • Three 15 minute one-on-one spiritual direction sessions

Participants are encouraged to retreat in a physical space conducive to maintaining silence while they “vacation with the Lord” (e.g. Mark Centre, Abbotsford; Bethlehem Centre, Nanaimo; Rivendell Retreat Centre or Hermitage, Bowen Island; Air B&Bs etc.). If you plan to retreat at home, more information will be sent about how to do that well once you are registered.
