Living one’s LGBTQ+ reality in a Christian context can pose profound challenges. Oftentimes life creates wounds that can make one feel as though you don’t belong, that you do not “fit in” as a Christian, that your role in the community is poorly defined, that you are set apart, and that you cannot truly be yourself in the living out your faith.
Beyond the questions related to the Church’s position, this retreat aims to cultivate and strengthen a spirituality that allows us to live a deeply intimate and personal relationship with God. We will explore Ignatian contemplative prayer together and will be able, if one wishes, to share in spiritual conversations.
Mark Langlois holds a degree in theology from the University of Montreal. However, his career has been a long and winding pilgrimage that has led him to work in the fields of teaching, international tourism and prison chaplaincy.
His formation at the Centre Le Pèlerin (Montreal) and at the Centre de spiritualité Manrèse (Quebec) allowed him to answer his call to spiritual accompaniment.
The ISCM is committed to providing high quality spiritual retreats to everyone, no matter their financial situation. We have been able to achieve this through the generous support of individual donors, group partners, and our volunteers. Should your financial situation be a barrier to reserve a retreat or if you are required to pay by cash or cheque, please contact us at [email protected] or at 438-377-1597 to discuss how we can help you get the support you need.
Changes and cancellations can result in additional expenses for the ISCM and a lost opportunity for others to attend a retreat. As such, we ask for a minimum deposit to confirm all retreat reservations.
