Testimonial to value of continuing education retreats


Testimonial: The Reverend Canon Joseph  Asselin, St Cuthbert’s Anglican Church, Oakville, ON


For the past 15 years now I have taken an extended retreat at the  Anglican/Episcopal monastery of the Society of St John the Evangelist in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Without exaggeration this time of prayer, silence, worship, meditation and community with the brothers, has kept me in parish ministry. The continuing education money provided makes this possible and I would encourage all of  my colleagues to consider this as a possible retreat and continuing education experience. Canadians are warmly welcomed at the monastery and people can take either a directed retreat, a programmed retreat (with a theme and speakers) or enter into a self directed retreat.
