STATUS UPDATE AND COVID19 INFORMATION
(March 20, 2020)
Effective Wednesday, March 18, Queen’s House Retreat and Renewal Centre is temporarily closed to the public due to the COVID-19 virus and will remain closed at minimum until April 30.
This decision was made in consultation with the information we are receiving both locally and federally from political and health authority leadership, and from the leadership team of OMI Lacombe Canada, which owns and operates Oblate retreat centres across Canada.
We will be monitoring our local situation, and as the month of April unfolds, we will have a better sense as to whether we will be able to open our doors to the public in May, or if that date will need to be adjusted. Although our Oblates, Associates, Board Members, Staff and Volunteers are saddened by and regret this decision, we know wisely and truly that this is the most responsible decision that can be made given what we know about the virus and in anticipation of what other challenges are still to come.
Please take good care of yourself and others in the coming days.
Peace be with you. From all of us at Queen’s House.
