Women’s Retreat

A group of women from Knox Church go on weekend retreat in the spring and the fall.  Retreats take place at Crieff Hills Community, the Presbyterian Church in Canada’s retreat centre in Puslinch.  From Friday evening until Sunday afternoon, they gather at Dove House to share a restful and refreshing weekend of fellowship, discussion, and good food and to enjoy the natural beauty of the countryside.

Participants share in providing and preparing the meals for the group and in the cost of renting the retreat house.  Dove House will accommodate 24 people and women are welcome to come for just part or all of the weekend.

Opera & Short Play
May 27 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Village Opera’s Spring show will be a double bill of two romantic comedies; George Bernard Shaw’s comedy, Village Wooing, and Giancarlo Menotti’s hilarious The Telephone. Both shows feature Katy Clark, soprano, and baritone Paul Grambo, as well as the wonderful pianist Denise Jung, and are directed by Adam Corrigan-Holowitz. Village Wooing follows the courting of an oddly matched couple— a village telephone operator and an abstracted writer. Shaw was said to have based this play on his own relationship with his wife. The Telephone deals with the difficulties of love in the modern era, especially when technology gets involved. The show will take place on Sunday May 27th at 3:00pm at Knox Presbyterian Church. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for students and children. They can be purchased at the church office (519-821-0141). For more information, contact Katy Clark at, or at 226-977-0978.
