Thanksgiving Associates’ Weekend – 2023
Make plans to join us on the Thanksgiving weekend – October 6 to 9, 2023
Something for everyone! All Associates are welcome to join in the annual Thanksgiving work + study gathering – a chance to gather with old friends and new ones, share in work projects around our campus and farm, learn and reflect with each other, and enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving feast with all the fixings!
We are delighted to be welcoming a special guest, Archbishop Chris Harper, the new National Indigenous Archbishop for the Anglican Church of Canada, for this special Thanksgiving weekend at the Sorrento Centre as we continue to move with joy through our 60th anniversary year.
Archbishop Chris is the son of a residential school survivor. He is Plains Cree. He earned his certificate of Indigenous Anglican theology from James Settee College in Prince Albert and received his Master’s of Divinity from Wycliffe College in 2005. He was priested the same year. In 2016 Harper was appointed as Indigenous native priest for the diocese of Toronto, a role he held until his election as bishop of Saskatoon in 2018. He has served on numerous Church committees, including the Council of General Synod. He is presiding Elder of Sacred Circle, a national gathering of Indigenous Anglicans for prayer, worship, discernment, and decision-making.
