Throughout the diocese, parishes and individuals are discovering how our shared vision is being lived out in their communities and excitement is building as new initiatives, inspired by a commitment to Renewed Hearts, Renewed Spirits and Renewed People are bringing the gospel, in new ways, to people of these islands and inlets.
With labyrinths, centres for spiritual renewal, seniors' programs, children's camps, lay education programs, online communications strategies and pastoral care initiatives, we are building up and reaching out.
The Parish of Salt Spring recently opened the Star of the Sea Centre for Spiritual Living and Practice and it is the focus of the first in our "Living the Vision" series. Watch for another video each month leading up to Synod 2018 (April 20-22).
