Bishop's Retreat for Clergy 2016

 Registration is now open for the annual retreat, October 31, November 1 and 2, 2016 at Loon Lake Lodge with Brother James Koester, Superior, Society of St John the Evangelist.

Brother James Koester SSJE has been a member of the Society of Saint John the Evangelist since 1989 and currently serves the community as the Superior. A native of Saskatchewan, he served in parish ministry in the Diocese of British Columbia for five years before entering the community. His interests range from vegetable gardening, keeping bees, chickens, ducks and geese to painting icons and Anglo-Saxon Church history. He is currently re-reading Bede’s Ecclesiastical History of the English People.  

Eucharistic Living The Rule of the Society of Saint John the Evangelist invites its members to aim at eucharistic living that is responsive at all times and in all places to the divine presence. As clergy we spend a great deal of time preparing for and celebrating the Eucharistic liturgy, but what might it mean to for us to live eucharistic lives? Using themes from Dom Gregory Dix’s The Shape of the Liturgy this retreat will invite us to ponder what it might mean for us a Christians for our lives to be offered, blessed, broken and taken for the life of the world.
