No "bots" allowed, you must be human to register. This was the message to anyone wanting to sign up for a 21 day meditation regimen. I wanted to sign up to boost my Lenten focus on meditation. Last time I checked I was human, so I went ahead.

Why this Gathering?
Ministry exercised by women in all denominations is pastoral, priestly and prophetic, serving the Body of Christ in love and compassion.
This retreat is designed for women employed in their respective churches as a time away to re-centre, to pray for and with one another, to share joys and sor-rows of ministry, and to support our mutual call to serve the Body of Christ in all of our churches.
Our Summer Ecumenical Institute (SEI) is coming up June 10-13, 2013. Our keynote speaker, Bishop Mark MacDonald, Canada's first National Indigenous Bishop, will speak on the topic Reconciling Churches / Reconciling Peoples. Paul Sartison will be with us to lead in worship and serve as our chaplain. Paul is a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran church, serves as chaplain at the U of S, and is an accomplished musician.
The Vision of the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism is the full visible unity of the Church – one body with many members.
The purpose of the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism is to be an instrument for Christian reconciliation and unity in obedience to the Spirit, serving the Prairie region of Canada. Through its presence, ministry, resources, and programs, its purpose is to call the churches to visible unity in one faith and in one Eucharistic fellowship expressed in worship and in common life in Christ, through witness and service to the world, and to advance towards that unity in order that the world may believe.
