Off to Rosemary Heights!
Starting on April 28th, the priests of the Diocese went on their yearly retreat to Rosemary Heights Retreat Centre in Surrey.
This beautiful facility, now owned and operated by the Archdiocese of Vancouver, was formerly run by the Good Shepherd Sisters. It works very well for our clergy as it is about a 30-minute drive from Tsawwassen and the ferries.
This year our retreat was preached by Bishop Emeritus, Denis Croteau from Mackenzie–Fort Smith Diocese. Bishop Croteau shared on the theme Who is God—Creation and Salvation.
We were privileged to be joined by three former Anglican Catholic clergy who will be ordained to the Deaconate as Catholic clergy on Friday, May 10.
Rosemary Heights Retreat Centre
Mission Statement: We strive to provide a place of contemplative reflection that encourages the exploration of spiritual and temporal matters so that the soul finds freedom to mature in a relationship with Christ Jesus, the mind and heart find clarity of purpose, and spiritual hunger is satisfied by awakening to God's continuing call for reconciliation and healing.
