HAMILTON – Archbishop Fred Hiltz, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, will give the keynote address at the Canadian Anglican Cursillo Triennial Conference, hosted by the Diocese of Niagara on June 22-24 at Renison University College in Waterloo. Participants will have a choice of attending two out of three workshops: “Discernment,” led by Sr. Elizabeth Ann Eckert of the Sisterhood of St. John the Divine in Toronto; “Your Spiritual Autobiography,” led by Canon Peter Davison of the Diocese of Niagara; and “Labyrinth,” led by Lori Haskings-Barber, a certified trainer in the use of spiritual labyrinths.
The Cursillo movement aims to support and encourage Christians through short courses in areas such as grace, faith, evangelism and Christian community in action. Brief talks are followed by discussions by participants in small groups. The movement originated in Spain in the 1940s; the first meeting of the Canadian Anglican Cursillo was held in Toronto in 1977.
