Week One of Summer Courses at Sorrento Centre

Many thanks to Jane Dittrich of Christ Church Cathedral for her photos from the first week of Sorrento Centre’s Summer Course Programming, July 9-15.

It was a great week which combined: beautiful weather for swimming and being outdoors; worship led by the Very Reverend Peter Elliott, Canon Herbert O’Driscoll, Canon Richard LeSueur , out-going Sorrento Executive Director, the Very Reverend Louise Peters and others); education courses such as, “Dyeing for Inspiration” a textiles course led by Thomas Roach, “Landscapes of the Spirit’” led by Canon Herbert O’Driscoll and Canon Richard LeSueur; and of course the always popular (some of them legendary) skits performed on variety night under the streamers in Kekuli, Sorrento Centre’s outdoor covered space.
