  • A visit to Immaculate Heart of Mary Retreat House in Cache Creek, B.C.

    Posted on June 12, 2017

    I recently facilitated a retreat for the clergy in the Diocese of Kamloops, B.C. We gathered at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Shrine Retreat House located in Cache Creek about one hour west of Kamloops. This diocese occupies a central swath of geography across the middle of B.C. from the Pacific Ocean to the Rocky Mountains - about the size of Italy! I preached on the theme‎: Rekindling the Gift Received - ‎a meditation on the spiritual life of priests. Bishop Joseph Nguyen is the new bishop here and is the second Vietnamese born priest to be ordained bishop in Canada. ‎Shown here are views of the shrine and a photo of the Kamloops clergy.
