Event description
Join us for Vancouver Island's Second Women's Retreat this November! "Merciful Love" is the theme for the 2019 retreat.

About this Event

We hope you can join us for Vancouver Island's Second Women's Retreat! Just in time for Advent.

This year‘s theme, Merciful Love, is inspired by the words of Thérèse de Lisieux: "How little known is the merciful love of Jesus."

This weekend will be an opportunity to get away from the demands of life and take time to renew our relationship with the Lord, who calls us His beloved daughters.

This experience offers something for everyone. Powerful presentations, prayer time, Sacraments, fellowship, music, rest, and the peacefulness of Vancouver Island. There will also be workshops by our guest speakers for further faith enrichment. Join us!
