As an individual, a group, or a whole parish, take part in the global ecumenical wave of prayer, known as Thy Kingdom Come, from May 30th to June 9th.  The YCV Area Evangelism Task Force has curated a selection of resources from the Thy Kingdom Come website and developed three step-by-step plans (easy, mid-level, and high) for parish involvement. You can find their recommendations here.

The Area will be celebrating with a TKC Beacon Event on June 7, 2019, for which we have created an event flyer that you can use to encourage your parishioners to come.

York-Credit Valley Clergy Retreat ~ September 23-24, 2019

“Conformed to Jesus in Living Waters”

Bishop Jenny invites York-Credit Valley clergy to join her at the annual fall retreat at the Mount Carmel Retreat Centre in Niagara Falls. The Rev. Dr. Gilles Mongeau SJ will be special guest & presenter, proposing three Scriptural meditations on the “Prayer over the Waters” of the baptismal liturgy and leading participants into a time of silent reflection and spiritual conversation, to taste again the joy of their own baptism and quicken their desire to join Christ on mission in the world.

The retreat will begin at 10:00am on Monday with registration and coffee, and concludes at 2:30pm on the Tuesday afternoon, following the same schedule as has been used in previous years.

Accommodation and meals are provided. This event is free of charge and open to active/paid clergy of the YCV Area.

Register now for the Fall Retreat
