Events and Program

Upcoming Events  


Christmas Day - Wednesday, December 25 - 
The blessings of Christ’s coming are so great that they can hardly be contained in a single service. Each of the three Christmas services is different. Each has a unique epistle, seasonal prayer, and gospel reading. Many find the special grace of the season by attending all three Acts of Consecration on Christmas Day, a threefold blessing for their own future and for the life of the earth.
12 a.m. Midnight
8:00 a.m. Dawn
10:30 a.m. Day
11:45 a.m. Christmas Service for Children after the Act of Consecration.
The Christmas story is retold from the altar, as it lives now. The words of this special service are spoken only once a year, bringing the children blessings for the entire year to come.
Brunch provided between 9:15 and 10 a.m.

The Christ-Voice of Conscience
Seminary Open Course: January 20-24, 2020 with Rev. Bastiaan Baan
Conscience is a silent voice, that accompanies us during our whole life. We can try to shout down or drown out this voice, but sooner or later it will speak again. How can we develop a deepened sensitivity for this faculty, through which - as Rudolf Steiner pointed out - Christ Himself speaks? In this Open Course we will trace the development of conscience in the history of humanity and in our own biographies. Beyond the past and the present, we will try to imagine how the faculty of conscience can become a guiding principle for our future. Suggested Donation: $350.00 Canadian
