Become an Associate – Join Us!

Our Associates are our most loyal and valued friends. Many Associates volunteer in practical ways in the spring and fall, many also make financial contributions to the life and operations of our beloved Centre.

Being a Sorrento Centre Associate means you can participate in policy making and election of Directors through the Annual General Meeting, have an exclusive invitation to the intergenerational May Weekend and the Thanksgiving Weekend, and you will receive Sorrento Centre updates and news every three weeks. As an added bonus, your accommodation is free for the two weekend events.

It’s simple and easy to become an Associate or to renew your membership. Simply call our office at 1-866-694-2409 from Monday to Sunday, 8:30am to 4:30pm, and one of our friendly office staff team will assist you (Maryann or Eileen). All Associates become members of the non-profit society, for a small annual membership fee of $50.

We are getting excited for Associates Weekend on May 9 – 12, 2024!

Our theme this year is “nourish” and we’ll be exploring reasons why we should be intentional about nourishing ourselves and others while we work on joyful spring tasks like preparing the gardens and planting the Centre’s beautiful flower baskets.

Check-in time is Thursday by 4pm or Friday morning; please head to the office in Spes Bona, the red brick heritage building. If you plan to arrive earlier or later, please call the office so that we can make appropriate arrangements. Our first gathering will occur on Friday at 9 am where you will receive a detailed schedule.

Worship will be offered daily thanks to Rev. Heather with an invitation to attend St. Mary’s for Eucharist on Sunday. Celebration of Life for longtime Sorrento Centre friends Elizabeth Peto and Joy Thompson will be held on Friday and Saturday respectively. The AGM will be held on Saturday at 4 pm. The launch of our Nourish: Guests and Staff favourite recipes cookbook will occur on Saturday night at the Wine and Cheese/Games Night.
