Friday, October 26 (6 pm supper) to Sunday, October 28 (1 pm)
During this retreat we will focus our attention on providing pastoral care to people who are facing transitions in their lives such as changing health, moving to new living environments, facing financial crisis, manoeuvring through health care systems or facing new relational challenges. We will include the development of pastoral care skills, spirituality and prayer, boundaries and ethics, and referrals and resources in this retreat.
