As a part of our growing retreat programme we like to offer participants a variety of ways to connect with God during a retreat. This retreat is geared towards those who are open to a day offering long periods of silence, short times of group devotions and individual spiritual direction.

  Father Richard Soo SJ Retreat Faciliator 

  Richard is a Jesuit from the Byzantine Catholic Church   tradition. Born in Vancouver, Father Soo grew up in      the Presbyterian Church. A lawyer by trade, he began     searching for religion seriously as a university student. While he noted that you just do not go out and find a Byzantine church on every street corner, he said that he researched various religions and, after becoming attracted to the Catholic Church found that the Byzantine tradition was more in keeping with his evangelical background than the Latin rite. We are delighted that Father Richard has gladly responded to our invitation to facilitate this retreat.  

    Christopher Chiu – Spiritual Direction

   Assisting us with individual spiritual direction will be our partner and friend, Christopher Chiu of SoulStream and also spiritual director withthe Jesuit Spirituality Apostolate of Vancouver (JSAV). Christopher Chiu has a Masters of Christian Studies from Regent College. He is a friend and partner with City in Focus as Program Coordinator of Jesuit Spirituality Apostolate of Vancouver.
