Fall Retreat


  • Mersey River Chalets Road NS, B0T Canada (map)

At the end of October, we embark on our annual Fall Retreat at Mersey River Chalets, a beautiful retreat centre located just outside the entrance to Kejimkujik National Park. The weekend is structured around the ancient times of monastic prayer, and features a guest speaker (2017-18 speaker to be announced! Past speakers include Canadian poet Tim Lilburn, and King's faculty members Daniel Brandes, Neil Robertson, and Roberta Barker). There is ample opportunity for swimming, canoeing, and hiking, both on-site and in Kejimkujik National Park. It is a weekend of fellowship, good food, music, nature, prayer, discussion, silence, and beauty. For a better description, you can check out photos of past Fall Retreats, the Winter Retreat video, and Winter Retreat Reflections.

Registration forms will be available at the back of the Chapel in October. Keep an eye out for posters and FYP announcements with more details. Questions? Contact Karis Tees at chapeladministrator@ukings.ca.
