OCSOA Retreat 2024

Retreat Facilitator: Dr. Josephine Lombardi

February  7-9, 2024

Kingbridge Conference Centre

12750 Jane Street, King City

The OCSOA Catholic Leadership & Faith Development Committee welcomes you to a meaningful and memorable retreat from February 7-9, 2024. We are preparing an experience of prayer, reflection and community-building anchored in petitions within The Lord’s Prayer. Just as this prayer is rooted in relationships with God and one another, so will our retreat experience be.

Pope Francis has called for the 2024 year to be one of preparation for the Jubilee Year in 2025. The theme of the Jubilee is “Pilgrims of Hope” and he asks that we prepare by engaging in prayer, particularly focusing on the “Our Father”. Our retreat facilitator is Dr Josephine Lombardi and this prayer is her area of expertise. Dr Lombardi wrote a beautiful book called “On Earth as it Is in Heaven” and has recently updated it to reflect the Jubilee Year. This will serve as the springboard for her talks and for the discussions and activities that take place at our retreat.

The CL&FD Committee is mindful of the incredible demands our members manage each and every day and of the critical importance of prayer and reflection to nurture and sustain us as leaders in Catholic education. We invite you to set this time aside and join together as a community to be inspired, engaged and rejuvenated in mind, body and spirit.

We look forward to being together soon!
