Montreal Directed Retreats: Pray with Scripture Online
Our weekday prayer sessions continue this month and into the Fall, Monday through Friday, from 10:30 a.m.-11:15 a.m.
Welcome to all who desire to deepen your relationship with God. Come join us and learn how to pray with scripture in the way of Saint Ignatius of Loyola.
Montreal Directed Retreats (MDR), supported by the English Speaking Catholic Council (ESCC), offers weekday morning online sessions, free and accessible to all via the cloud platform Zoom.
Each session will include a short teaching on the Ignatian method of prayer, listening to a Scripture reading and entering into the experience. Following a quiet time, there will be opportunity for sharing (optional).
The sessions are 45 minutes in duration and run from Monday to Friday, 10:30 a.m. each morning. If you wish to join us, or if you have any questions, contact us at:

Stuck at home?
Trying to make sense of everything?
An invitation from St. Thomas à Becket Parish
Wednesday, October 7, will see the launch of our Fall 2020 session of Sycamore, following a very successful first experience last year.
Sycamore is an informal course about the Christian faith and its relevance for life today. It gives you space to meet other people, share ideas, explore your beliefs, and think about questions that really matter. Each Sycamore session involves a short film and some time for discussion. There’s no pressure, no commitment, no charge. You can be yourself without any fear of being judged. There’s a real sense of community, a spirit of friendship and some great conversation.
Everyone is welcome. Given current circumstances, the program will be entirely online.
