A contemplative retreat held in the beauty of the Nova Scotian backcountry in autumn and embraced by the daily singing of the Monastic Offices. Alan Hall of St Thomas University (Fredericton) will lead a series of talks on the relationship between brokenness and celebration, punctuated by periods of silence, with discussion opened by respondents. Retreatants can also enjoy the outdoors canoeing, hiking, or simply relaxing in nature. The retreat is held at Mersey River Chalets, in Annapolis County, NS, near Kejimkujik National Park.
Registration forms are available at the back of the Chapel. They must be filled out and returned to Stephanie Boudreau at the A&A front desk by 5:00 pm on Wednesday, October 23.

The trick is not to arrange a festival but to find people who can enjoy it.
Everything you see’s not the way it seems – tears can sing and joy shed tears.
Joy & woe are woven fine
