Description: Join us for a spiritual retreat aimed at rejuvenation, connecting with God the Creator, and emerging with a renewed sense of purpose. To "retreat" is to strategically withdrawal, to find a new perspective, and return with a new focus; prepared to continue protecting creation.

There will be time for worship, prayer led by a Mi'kmaq Water Protector, smudging, fellowship, silent reflection, activities and music. Please feel free to bring along musical instruments.
