    Administrative history

    In April 1973 a well attended week-end retreat was held at Vancouver School of Theology, with Father D. Hemming, S.S.J.E., as conductor. There were 25 retreatants representing a number of parishes. At the evaluation session following the retreat, those present expressed a great interest in Retreats and Quiet Days and requested that plans be made for them to be held regularly. Going away from the hectic daily life for a quiet period of rest and discussions was considered a good opportunity to renew and invigorate the spiritual life of the Church. Subsequently, the Bishop requested that the Rev. Ian Grant and Mrs. Marjorie Barlow form a Diocesan Retreat Committee. Mrs. Marjorie Barlow served as the first chairman. On November 17, 1973 a Quiet Day was held at the Vancouver School of Theology with Bishop David Somerville as conductor. A week-end retreat was held at V.S.T. May 3 - 5, 1974, with Bishop R.E.F. Barry as conductor. To finance the first retreat in April 1973, money was borrowed from the Diocese. Since then the registration fees and offertories have been sufficient to meet expenses. The programme for coming years was planned as follows: three Quiet Days to be organized every year during winter, spring and fall seasons; two of them to be held in different parishes in Vancouver and one of them outside the Vancouver area; and one week-end retreat to be held each a year. The role of the Retreat Committee was also to help parishes organize parish retreats or Quiet Days by offering information to parishioners that would help them plan and co-ordinate their own events and by supplying materials.
