QUEEN OF APOSTLES is a Retreat and Renewal Centre under the direction of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, Assumption Province.
Since its beginning in 1963, retreatants have appreciated the wonderful “country in the city” setting. The centre is situated on twelve acres of beautiful property overlooking the Credit River. A sturdy staircase leads down a steep hill to the river’s edge. Another gift of mother nature is the beautiful water lilies and many fish in the pond at the main entrance as well as in the new courtyard.
Visitors appreciate the life-size Oblate mission cross erected on the grounds. This spot has become a favorite place to stop and pray.
There are broadloomed conference rooms accommodating from 25-180 persons. These rooms are fully equipped for retreats, discussion groups, or seminars.
Private accommodations are available for up to 75 people, with a two-piece washroom in each room. As well, we host many other groups for day and overnight stays.
Our newly renovated dining room is also an experience with family style meals, platters of food, served to each table. Our creative chefs never fail to prepare meals that satisfy the taste buds.
The current team consists of Oblate Fathers Chris Pulchny, Director of the Centre, Peter Nowak, Pawel Ratajczak together with Mrs. Anne Hales, an Oblate Lay Associate.
Encounter programs are the principal format for married couples as well as couples engaged to be married. A variety of retreat programs for people in all walks of life is offered throughout the year. Spiritual directors are available for individual retreats.
