The Way: Evening Series for Young Adults & ALCDSB Staff - October 20th and First Wednesdays of the Month

The Archdiocese of Kingston Youth Office is excited to partner with the ALCDSB to offer a virtual faith formation evening series: The Way: A Guide for the Journey. Featuring Catholic artist and music minister Josh Blakesley, alongside speaker and author Paul George, The Way is a unique series of 10 worship-night style videos, promoting reflection and thoughtful prayer. Each episode highlights a specific theme — God’s love, forgiveness, prayer and silence in life — further reflected upon through beautiful music and in-depth discussion. This monthly faith formation opportunity will be offered virtually on Microsoft Teams from 7 pm - 8 pm on the first Wednesday of the month (additional session October 20th) and will include the streaming of the 20-minute video and a small group breakout session with discussion questions. There is no cost. Participants will be given the flexibility to choose as many sessions as they would like to join as they are stand alone sessions.

The rosary is more than a devotion. It is the story of the early church, which begins with Mary.

This day will include short presentations by Deacon Bill, an invitation into silence and personal reflection time, and a time of sharing with other participants.

Registration is Limited.  Cost: $25.00 [Three facilitated virtual sessions with Deacon Bill Gervais] Payment by cheque.  Register: by Fri Oct 22, 2021.  E-mail info@psck.org or telephone 613-542-8826 Ext. 500.

Eight Steps to Happiness: Five-Day Virtual Guided Retreat - Providence Spirituality Centre

January 24,6:30pm - January 28, 2022

How often have you said, “I just want to be happy”? Have you ever stopped to consider exactly what happiness means? Is happiness having fun at a party, the excitement of new experiences, the delights of a fine meal. Although these are all wonderful experiences to be cherished and cultivated, they are not happiness, but a definition of pleasure. So, if happiness is not the same thing as pleasure, then what is happiness? Happiness is an attitude, which this retreat will explore by considering Jesus’ eight steps to happiness as stated in his beatitudes.

Registration is Limited. Cost for 5-Day retreat $200.00 Payment by cheque.  Register: by Mon Jan 10, 2022.

E-mail info@psck.org or telephone 613-542-8826 Ext. 500.
