Season of Spiritual Renewal

During the recent Cast the Net listening and visioning process, we heard that, as a Diocese, we’re hungry to know and love God more deeply.

To that end, Bishop Andrew has called us to begin a two-year Season of Spiritual Renewal, lasting until Epiphany 2026. This is Call to Action #1 emerging from Cast the Net.

“My hope is that this will lead us to a deep and profound joy in the gospel of Jesus Christ and a sense of communities large and small feeling a part of a rekindling of the Anglican Church in the Diocese of Toronto.” -Bishop Andrew Asbil

God, of your goodness give me yourself,
For you are enough for me. I cannot properly ask anything less, to be worthy of you. If I were to ask less, I should always be in want.
In you alone do I have everything.
– Julian of Norwich


Here’s how we see this Season taking shape:

  • Jan-May 2024: Planning, development & communication
  • June 2024: Collation & dissemination of resources; leadership training
  • Sept 2024-June 2025: Focus on prayer, study of scripture and worship
  • Sept-Nov. 2025: Focus on sharing the faith
  • Epiphany 2026: Focus on continuing in the disciplines linked to renewal
