Who is My Neighbour?”
April 4 to 6, 2019
Star of the North Retreat Centre,3A St. Vital Ave., St. Albert, AB
Women of The United Church in Alberta and Northwest Territories (Chinook Winds and Northern Spirit Regions)
We think you will enjoy and be enriched by the program we have prepared and by meeting and worshipping with other women. For the first time, we are meeting at Star of the North Retreat Centre in St. Albert, “a peaceful oasis in the midst of a busy world”. Registration includes accommodation and all meals, or if you live close by, you can choose to come for the day and go home at night. Free parking is available.
For our program, we will be learning more about Intercultural Ministries and Interfaith relationships, both of which are important topics in our increasingly diverse society. Come to learn more about neighbours in our own church and in other faiths.
Plan to arrive between 3:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Thursday afternoon. Our program will begin when we gather at 5:00, and when we share dinner at 5:30 p.m. We will continue Thursday evening, all day Friday, and conclude on Saturday after lunch.
In addition to our guest speakers, the program will include singing, fellowship, daily devotionals, a memorial service, worship on Saturday (with communion), and a meeting to set a path for the Women of United Church in what are now Northern Spirit and Chinook Winds Regions.
