A free program at St James Cathedral Wednesday nights October 25 to November 15 from 7:00-9:00pm.

Am I retired or will I retire soon? As I contemplate or embark on this new phase of life, what do I see as my main purpose? How is God calling me into new ways of living? How can retirement enable me to make best use of my capabilities and resources? If I have retired, how can I think about my life in new ways? If you’re facing questions such as these, we invite to take part in the Relaunching Your Life series being held at the Lecture Room of St. James Cathedral.

  • Session One: Taking Stock What I’ve done…how have I made major life transitions in the past…how could that experience help me now?
  • Session Two: New Possibilities for My Life What do I want to do? What kind of life do I want to lead?
  • Session Three: Visioning My Re-launched Life, and Starting a plan to make it happen
  • Session Four: Making it Happen Next steps, including possible support from others, to achieve your goals

Sessions will combine presentations, individual reflection through creative expression such as journaling or visual representation, sharing in pairs and in small groups.

All welcome, including singles, couples and non-Anglicans.
