Faith and Sharing Retreat
With Reverend Dan Kirkegaard
August 21 - 26, 2022
Moving with Spirit in Faith
Faith and Sharing is a Christian ecumenical and transforming retreat experience. It is an opportunity to encounter the Body of Christ. Participants come from all walks of life with many stories to tell. Faith and Sharing is an invitation to reflect on the gospel, pray, share and celebrate our lives together. The experience is only the beginning to a new way of life. At Faith and Sharing you will find a community to support you as you strive to live a richer life.
This retreat will include 5 days of :
- Inspiring talks
- Daily liturgy and prayer
- Sharing faith in small groups
- Silence and reflection times
- Being with friends new and established

- Joy and laughter
Come as you are and be welcomed for who you are

History of Faith and Sharing
In 1974, Bishop Remi De Roo attended a Faith and Sharing Retreat in Vancouver. He returned to Vancouver Island and encouraged a group to start Faith and Sharing here. A five-day retreat was held in Duncan in October 1974. Retreats and days of renewal have been organized on Vancouver Island every year since. We have been holding retreats every summer at Bethlehem Centre since 1989.
Reverend Dan Kirkegaard has led and guided Tsawwassen United Church for over 10 years, implementing some new traditions along with honouring past traditions. Influences for the ministry of Rev Dan come through 38 years of involvement with L’arche and involvement with International Cultures and First Nations work.
