OCSOA Retreat 2023

Retreat Facilitator: Brother Mickey O’Neill McGrath

February  8-10, 2023

Kingbridge Conference Centre

12750 Jane Street, King City

No stranger to OCSOA, Brother Mickey was a retreat facilitator a few years ago and is a sought after faith animator throughout North America and beyond. His art beautifully and colourfully manifests a response to the call of the Holy Spirit. It showcases the dignity and giftedness of all God’s creation. He creatively yet simply draws people into a deep reflection about themselves, their relationships with others, and their response to God’s call in their lives. He will lead us through a series of reflections, anchored in his experience as an artist.

The OCSOA Faith Committee welcomes you to a meaningful and memorable retreat!

We are preparing an experience of prayer, reflection, community-building, joy and HOPE that you will not want to miss…and we do not want to miss you! Register today and spread the word!

Catholic Supervisory Officers lead from the heart, rooted in faith. We share a commitment to model and share the Gospel, hope, joy and unconditional love in all places and times, no matter who is involved or what is going on. This retreat will explore how we do this with a particular focus on taking care of ourselves so that we can care for others. The schedule will include opportunities to listen, dialogue, reflect, pray and respond…it will include a balance of group time and individual time…a blend of faith and fun…time to rekindle old friendships and build new ones…something for everyone!

The past few years have been marked by many layers of complexity, on top of what is already a profoundly important and challenging role for Catholic leaders. This retreat is an invitation to nurture our faith journey so that we can be the face of HOPE for others and see the face of HOPE in all those we serve and support. We share a common desire to live and lead in a spirit of hope and joy! This is nurtured and enlivened when we come together to break bread in a variety of ways. February 2023 is the firstin-person OCSOA retreat in a couple years, and we are THRILLED to continue this incredible tradition. There are many new faces within our OCSOA family and we cannot wait to meet you all in February!
