A mini Advent retreat was held at Regis College on December 3, beginning at 12 o'clock with soup, bread and a beverage. It consisted of four sessions of a reading from scripture, a short reflection and 20 minutes of silent contemplation. The retreat ended with Eucharist at 4:15 pm. A meaningful pause during Advent!
On November 11-13, Sr. Maureen Baldwin took part in a retreat with 11 women who experience homelessness in the greater Toronto area. The retreat is part of the Ignatian Spirituality Project at Regis College which is partnering with the Seeds of Hope Foundation. The group gathered at St. Joseph's Retreat Center in Cobourg, ON, amidst the beauty along Lake Ontario. It was a beautiful experience for all involved.
