Calgary Monthly Meeting Winter Retreat

  • Kamp Kiwanis 241001 Range Road 42 Calgary, Alberta T3Z 2X5 Canada (map)

This is CMM's annual retreat, when Calgary Friends gather to build community and educate ourselves about something of importance to Canadian Quakers. This year we will have a special guest from Quakers Fostering Justice, Sarah Chandler, who will be leading a workshop on Penal Abolition on Saturday afternoon and evening. After arriving on Saturday, Friends will engage in a session of worship sharing on the State of our Society before lunch. On Sunday morning there will be a Meeting for Worship at the Kamp from 10:30 until shortly before lunch. Most retreat participants will stay overnight and share in the preparation and consuming of meals at the Lodge we have reserved, but Friends (both those from Calgary and those coming from farther afield) are welcome to come for only a part of the program. Greg Meaker is our registrar and is coordinating meal preparation: please contact him (email: gmeaker AT shaw.ca; phone: 403-802-3991) so we know you are coming and can have all meals covered.
