Leading with Heart: Step One
Annual Retreat and Meeting


Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

We are filled with anticipation and joy to offer our retreat “Leading with Heart”.

In planning this retreat, we recognize your time commitments and all that pulls you in different directions. To facilitate our time together we are putting our reports on line HERE, written and videos so you can watch at your convenience. All of these will remain here on our website which we encourage you to visit often. Each affiliate will have a link and short video from the Province coordinator sharing a bit about their ministry. In addition, each board member will share a little bit about how they came into this leadership position.

Welcome to our retreat and journey into the Sacred. Welcome into the discovery of a broader perspective and view of Episcopal Church Women of Province VIII, a discovery of who we are and our ministries.

Recognizing those who came before us, the grandmothers, grandfathers and all who lived upon these lands, we invite you to see what peoples originally lived upon these lands you call home. We honor them and give thanks for this place we call home. Https://native-land.ca

In God’s Peace and New Life.
