About this Event

The annual Deemerton Winter Retreat for university students studying in the Diocese of Hamilton will take place:

Friday, January 24 to Sunday January 26, 2020 at the St. Ignatius Retreat Centre in Deemerton, Ontario.

The Theme of this year's retreat is "Devotions".

Guelph students: A bus will depart on Friday, January 24 from the University of Guelph, Parking Lot P31 on South Ring Road at 5:30pm and return on Sunday, January 26 by 4:00pm.

Hamilton and Waterloo students - speak to your respective campus ministers for transportation details. If you are joining the Guelph bus with your group, please note that transportation to and from Guelph is not included in the registration price.

The Retreat Centre supplies a dressed bed and towels.

Note: in recognition of the varying needs and course loads of students, most activities are optional. You can sleep or do school work if needed. This retreat should be a benefit to your current vocation and not a hinderance to it.

The loose schedule for Friday night is as follows:

After our arrival at approximately 7:00 pm, Holy Mass will be offered, followed by a late meal.

Then there will be a time of exposition and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, during which time the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be celebrated and a talk will be given.

Note that Holy Mass will also be offered on Sunday morning.

The cost is $80, which includes transportation from Guelph/Elora to Deemerton and back, accommodations, and meals. Cheques should be made payable to:
