Spiritual formation begins where you are and incrementally guides you into a deeper and more profound encounter with the living Christ…
For the Life of the World
(Pro Mundi Vita)
A uniquely Anglican Spiritual Formation Retreat for the Next Generation
Participation in a Spiritual Retreat suggests something about what we believe about God. That is, we believe that we are met by God when we step away from our everyday situation. Spiritual retreat is a “third place”: it is outside of our home and our church. It can provide a unique lens on these more routine places and provide insight and renewal for us to re-enter these more ordinary places with renewed vigor.
One of the goals of the For the Life of the World (Pro Mundi Vita) Retreat is to meet people where they are and to respond to their needs, in order that they might better encounter God and be equipped to further their spiritual journeys.
The format of the Retreat supports spiritual formation through personal encounters with God through the power of the Holy Spirit. Using creative structured exercises, music and art, each individual is empowered to reflect on her or his own faith journey, to experience refreshment in common prayer, to encounter Christ in the Scriptures, and to seek a time of contemplative rest in God and in community.
The invitation is now open to 25 people who desire spiritual growth and who want to shape the development of a new and unique program.The two retreats will take place at Camp Elphinstone, Gibson's, BC
This subsidized two-night retreat include all meals/snacks and materials. The facilities are modern cabins that include a common lounge, private showers and rooms with bunk beds; two people per room (Participants need to bring their own bedding and towels.) Each participant is asked to contribute $30 towards the cost. Evaluation of the weekend experience will be an important contribution to the success of this unique Pilot Project.
Clergy are welcome to attend with their parishioners.
Retreat goals are:
- To engage the energy, creativity and commitment of the next generation of Anglicans and prepare them to be change catalysts in the communities where God has placed them,
- To support participants to deepen their Christian faith as they mature in their walk with Christ Jesus in their daily lives and in the life of their parish/community.
