City in Focus presents;

BLUE CHRISTMAS RETREAT

Saturday, December 8, 2018 | 1:30-4:30PM
Eastern Catholic Church | 8700 Railway Avenue, Richmond, V7C 3K3

Hosted by Fr. Richard Soo, SJ

Christmas can be a difficult time for many. Loneliness, grief, financial pressures, or the stress of meeting up with people can weigh heavily on oneself. In this half-day retreat, you are invited to a restful time with God, of prayer and quiet reflections grounded in the Byzantine Christian tradition.

Experience the presence of God through Eastern forms of Christian prayer and worship. Explore the wonders of chant, icons, liturgical spirituality, and incense.

The Very Rev. Richard Soo, SJ, is a Jesuit Priest in the Eastern Catholic Eparchy of New Westminster and all British Columbia and the Yukon. He is the priest at Richmond Eastern Catholic Church and the Superior of the Jesuits in BC and the Director of the Jesuit Spirituality Apostolate of Vancouver.

Cost – $25, includes coffee & muffins
(Concession prices are available if you are finding the Christmas season a little tight!)
