Star of the North Retreat Centre
“Even a seemingly small act of generosity can grow into something far beyond what we could ever ask or imagine (see Eph. 3:30) – the creation of a community of love in this world, and beyond this world, because wherever love grows, it is stronger than death (1 Cor. 13:8). So when we give ourselves to planting and nurturing love here on earth our efforts will reach out beyond our own chronological existence. Indeed, if we raise funds for the creation of a community of love, we are helping God build the kingdom. We are doing exactly what we are supposed to do as Christians.” Henri Nouwen
We thank God for the gifts of so many who have contributed to the Star and who form part of a community of love for the Star, for the glory of God! May God bless us all, near and far, alive or gone before us, who have or are shaping a history of healing and hope for future generations to come.
Star of the North will continue to dare to live the Gospel and offer radical hospitality, hope and inspiration for the weary, the wounded, the healers, bridge-builders, creators, lovers of God’s dream for a world of peace, love and justice.
Star raises funds through our Camino Walk, letter mail-outs and other fundraising events for the following:
* annual inner-city Men’s and Women’s Weekend Wellness Retreats
* Capital renovation projects - 2021 is for our Chapel renovation project.
* Retreat, Seminar, Conference, and Spiritual Formation Grant Subsidies for those who need assistance to attend a variety of programs.
* Star accepts donations for the Canadian Sacred Art of Living Programs to assist persons wanting to attend Healing the Healers workshops or the two-year Anamcara program.
We thank you for your support.
