For over twenty years, Integrity members and their friends have gone on an annual post-Easter retreat at St John's Convent in North York. For most of that time, our leader was Sister Thelma-Anne ssjd (front row, in navy blue, above). The picture above is the "class photo" of the 2004 retreat, led by Bishop Barry Hollowell of Calgary (front row, right) at the old convent in Willowdale.
