Programs and Retreats

There are many different programs and retreats that people can participate in.

A few of those possibilities are listed below.

Requests can be made for retreats or programs for your specific group with topics determined collaboratively.

During this time of COVID-19, all in-person programs and retreats are on hold. On-line programming is now being planned for Autumn. Please check back soon!


Retreats can be anywhere from a half-day to several days in length.

Topics might include: 

  • Liturgical Season, such as Advent, Lent...
  • Virtues, such as Joy, Hope, Love...
  • Writings, such as those of Margaret Silf, Jean Vanier, Pope Francis...
  • Prayer practices, such as Journaling, Sabbath Time, Solitude...
  • Creativity in Prayer...
  • ... and the list goes on!


Book Clubs

With all participants using the same book, meetings are held on a regular basis - weekly or monthly - to discuss designated chapters. Discussions are based on faith-sharing practices, rather than "surface" talk about the book. This means that chapters are read reflectively, and often questions are provided for consideration. Sharing is then based on those reflection experiences.

Authors might include:

  • Margaret Silf
  • Henri Nouwen
  • Christine Valters Paintner
  • Joyce Rupp
  • Ron Rolheiser
  • Sue Monk Kidd
  • Joan Chittister
  • Richard Rohr
  • ... again, the list goes on!

Christian Meditation

One of my favourite lessons with children is teaching them how to do Christian meditation. I believe children are naturally close to God, even if they don't realize it. As a result, they tend to be very open to this type of prayer.

Meditation is also beneficial for adults! It helps quiet both mind and body, so we can listen more closely to our innermost being - that centre where God dwells.

I am available to teach Christian Meditation to groups of children or adults.
