This turkey buzzard likes Jericho House as its new home, and we are seeking a compromise.

Thousands of young people enter into Jericho House conferences, peer ministry workshops, and retreats like this Aboriginal Leadership Camp.

Participants develop leadership skills, deepen their relationship with God, and grow in their understanding of self, others and the world.

One of the options is the Some Time Away experience for young people 1826 from across Canada living in a community focused on facilitating experiences with and for youth.

Other options include confirmation retreats, Torch social justice days, Torch leadership conferences, adult retreats, and the Spiritual-Centred Outdoor Education Program (SCOEP).

Adult retreats at Jericho House are usually developed in conjunction with a parish, school, or staff committee to ensure that the experience meets the needs of a particular adult community. Adults from the local community are called upon to provide leadership for the small groups.

Other adult retreats at Jericho House are facilitated by Sue Empringham of the Center for Courage & Renewal.  The Circles of Trust® model, which is based on the work of Parker J. Palmer, offers safe space to reflect on one’s personal and professional life. This nurtures capacity for trustworthy relationships and expands ability to listen and be present. It offers the courage to live and lead authentically. See Sue's Upcoming Events for her 1-day and 3-day retreats.

Another adult retreat at Jericho House is “Experiencing and Exploring: Contemplative Small Group Spiritual Direction.” The third annual retreat, with a retreat team of Christine Rybka-Miki, Maureen McDonnell and Paul Miki, is on November 5–7, 2015.
