Developing the Life of Prayer

The VITA Retreat: Prayer that Makes us Whole

A homegrown resource! Following a successful four part pilot program called "Pro Vita Mundi", the diocese of New Westminster is launching the VITA Retreat: a three day prayer retreat for adults of all ages who are looking to refresh and renew their prayer and ministries. Using lectio divina as a guiding metaphor, the retreat leads participants in a range of prayer practices with a grounding in the beauty of God as revealed in creativity and Creation. Small groups foster relationship building and conversation about experiences of God in prayer. Daily times of corporate prayer rooted in the Anglican tradition round out the event. The next retreat is scheduled for March 22-24 at Loon Lake Retreat Centre in Maple Ridge, BC. Registration is open here:

Whose it for: anyone needing a retreat and some refreshment through a generous approach to prayer. Those looking to reinvigorate their relationship with the Holy Spirit and bring that relationship more fully into daily life and ministry.
