When Helping You is Hurting Me...

ESCAPING THE MESSIAH TRAP with facilitator Cathie Macaulay

This workshop will explore seven common styles of being a “Messiah” and some of the ways in which we can become more aware of unhealthy patterns in our helping relationships. We will also look at healthy models of Christian service and leadership. In an interactive way, we will explore the balance in our own lives of service, increase our awareness about how we make decisions and how to find balance in our busy lives.

Book and Yard Sale

May 10 and 11, 2013
As many of you know, our annual Book and Yard sale is a vital source of income to the Centre and a labor of love for the volunteers, who tirelessly sort through and organize the donations we receive.
Please consider donating gently used items, including clothing and house ware, small appliances and electronic items which are in working order, and of course, our pièce de résistance, BOOKS, to the Centre for our next sale.
Please note that items may be dropped off during regular office hours, Monday to Thursday, 9 am to 4 pm. Please contact the Centre at 514-481-1064, or at centre@ignatiancentremtl.ca, if you need to make an appointment outside of these times.

Walking in the Desert...

...with facilitator: John Carey

Date: Saturday, March 2, 2013
Time: 9am - 3 pm

(Coffee and cookies included. Please bring a lunch)

New and experienced pray-ers may feel their prayer life is flat or “boring” at times. The saints often called this the “desert.” This feeling of God’s absence can be reflected in our workplace or through the crises in our Church and parishes or in family transitions. What do the mystics, both modern and traditional, have to tell us?
This workshop will tap into the traditional spiritual wisdom of the Desert Mothers and Fathers, including John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila as well as the experience of more contemporary writers.

To register or for more information, please contact the Ignatian Spirituality Centre at
