Hosted by City in Focus:

Join us for a silent prayer retreat in the Ignatian tradition with our partner and friend Christopher Chiu of SoulCare Vancouver who is also a member of the Jesuit Spirituality Apostolate of Vancouver.

Our time will be spent with short teaching periods on methods of praying interspersed with periods spent in solitude and silence.  There will be three extended prayer periods offered and spread out during the day in which we will pray according to the Ignatian way.  Outside the prayer periods, we will be living and experiencing (passively) the Presence of God in whatever activity we may choose to do, such as walking, doing a craft or just chilling out. This is assisted by silence and the removal of oneself from distractions.

As such, we kindly ask you:

–          Do not bring reading materials

–          Turn off all electronic devices during the time of the retreat

Please bring:

–          A physical Bible

–          Pen and paper

–          Prayer Journal (optional)

–          Appropriate clothing for going outside (if one intends to go for a walk)

–          A craft to do (optional)
(i.e. a not-so-cognitive activity such as knitting, jigsaws, drawing)

Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements, as refreshments and lunch will be provided.  Thanks!
