 A spiritual formation retreat, rooted in Anglican spirituality, where the Holy Spirit can move to personally transform participants to more actively engage in Christian prayer life and mission.

After a successful pilot program, "The Vita Retreat" (formerly known as "Pro Vita Mundi") is now ready to be a formative event for the diocese. The retreat is open to 25 people who desire spiritual growth and who want to explore  their prayer lives in a supportive, creative retreat environment

This two-night retreat includes all meals/snacks and materials. The facilities are modern cabins that include a common lounge, private showers and rooms with bunk beds; two people per room (Participants need to bring their own bedding and towels).

The Retreat goals are: 

  • To support participants as they broaden and deepen their experience of prayer in their everyday lives and activities.
  • To inspire the energy, creativity and commitment of this generation of Anglicans as they engage the communities where God has placed them.


  • 2 nights accommodation, all meals, and retreat materials included. A van to carry registrants and luggage to/from the retreat centre and the Gibsons Ferry terminal will be available. Registrants are responsible for arranging their own transportation to/from their home to the Gibsons ferry teminal.
  • $195.00 (Full value: $300.00)
  • For bursary application to cover up to 50% of cost: email jschaap@vancouver.anglican.ca
