Physicians & Trainees Retreat May 5th 2018

This retreat is intended for physicians and trainees from all Ontario, and hopefully beyond. Its first iteration in 2017 was very well received. Much of what we’ve done in recent years has resolved around some heavy advocacy work, but this only makes sense if we are drawn closer to Christ, the Physician of our souls and bodies … I would encourage physicians and trainees of all ages to try to carve time in their spring schedule for this, knowing that some have to arrange time for significant travel. For those with families, please note that the retreat is explicitly intended to be accommodating in this regard — with a very large property for roaming and rooms for napping. This is an excellent opportunity to invite a colleague to a prayerful activity …

St Elias the Prophet Church
10193 Heritage Road, Brampton, ON
Conveniently located between Toronto, London and Hamilton, this lively parish was promptly rebuilt after an April 2014 fire. Its pastoral and liturgical life is a beacon in the byzantine Catholic world and a place of numerous conversions.

Retreat director:

Fr Teodosy … that is Hieromonk Teodosy Kraychuk of the Skete of the Precious and Life-Creating Cross
Vibrant for Christ and orthodox in every way that can be conceived, Fr Teodosy is a monk in the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. His story is most extraordinary, and matched only by his humility.


There is no mandatory fee. Donations are encouraged to help offset the cost of Fr Teodosy’s travels, and help support the parish that is welcoming us so generously.
