This “Hope and Imagine” retreat will the first in a series of day retreats bringing refreshment to people involved in spiritual care and pastoral ministry. We cannot draw from empty wells; come all who are thirsty! Come and experience how shared song, contemplation in prayer and the quiet accompaniment of others on the journey brings renewal to our beings and fills us again with Living Waters. Set on the mountain top at Westminster Abbey, in Mission BC, among the trees and a view of the Fraser River Valley, this day retreat promises to be a point of reconnection and revitalization.
This retreat will be co-facilitated by Rev. Rebecca Simpson and Cathy AJ Hardy.
