We still have some openings for retreats

please call if you would like us to come to your parish or school


We have had a busy fall and winter here with Outreach Ministry in several locations.  We facilitated Confirmation Retreats in Bonnyville, Onoway and Ponoka, a Reconciliation Retreat in Morinville and an Advent Retreat Evening for St. Andrew's Parish in Edmonton. Next month we will be helping at the Prayer Breakfast on March 14, 2009

at Chateau Louis in Edmonton.

I would like to share with you a few comments taken from the evaluation forms:

Ponoka 2009

The Confirmation Retreat went well! One of the parents commented on the peaceful flow of energy when she arrived to assist with the closing.

Morinville  2008

I was VERY impressed by the group in general.... The energy and enthusiasm they exhibit and the comfort in sharing their beliefs, I was impressed.

Edmonton 2008

The group that came down from JP II to assist us with our annual Retreat was outstanding.  ...It is a blessing for the whole church having young people such as these that so willingly serve the Lord.


UPDATE: February 9, 2009

We are preparing three travelling teams departing April 25th, 2009 and returning May 31st, 2009.  The teams will be ministering in Alberta and Saskatchewan to date.
We're looking forward to sending this group of students on outreach.  Their love for the Lord and willingness to serve His people, are the Bible School's greatest assets.

Here's what one student had to say:

It was awesome.  They were so fun and the skits were educational and I really learned alot.  When you have fun you tend to remember more and I remember everything they taught me.  I think you should get them again for next year.

Very enthusiastic team, pleasant and fun!

Bonnyville 2008

The personal testimonies showed

God's love and grace,

and hope in the resurrection very well.

Kim E. Dec.' 08

The whole day was very good.  The team was friendly and the kids were very excited to have the team come. Having them pray together at the retreat, is a good preparation for the students preparing for Confirmation. 

It was a great example for them.

The talks I heard were fantastic.

Fr. Andrew Feb.' 09

The team was energetic and sincere.  They showed their love of children.  It was easy to tell that these young people are on fire for Jesus.  We need to see more of this.
