Your family is waiting for you.
Please note that Tuesday is the new Thursday (meaning that The Forge and Adoration have been moved to Tuesday, now including Mass - see below).
A few days to mark on your calendar:
Wednesday October 17, 2018: Faith and Reason
This is the annual tri-chaplaincy pilgrimage (with our friends at the Newman Centre Guelph and McMaster University). We are the hosts this year. Come for dinner, Mass, and Adoration, and hear Professor Nick Zunic explore Pope St. John Paul II's encyclical Fides et Ratio (Faith and Reason) - a timely topic to say the least. It also happens to be close to the 20th anniversary of the encyclical's promulgation, AND the 40th anniversary of our namesake's election as pope! It will be intellectually stimulating, spiritually invigorating, and socially...cool.
Friday January 18 to Sunday January 20, 2019
Our annual Winter Retreat in Deemerton ON
Also with our friends from the three chaplaincies.
If you haven't heard about it, ask someone at the Student Centre. It's a blast. It's a more relaxed and social retreat, with all activities optional (though learning, spiritual, and social opportunities abound). Watch for further registration information on this site and on facebook.
Be warned: there are marriages which can be attributed to this retreat.
