Save the Dates (and note that they are in July this year!): Sat 8th - Thurs 13th July 2023
The format in 2023 will be “blended,” with a mix of in person only, online only, and fully blended sessions.
The in-person Gathering will be in Winnipeg, at the Canadian Mennonite University. There will be options to camp or to stay in residence (air conditioning optional), and to opt in to the cafeteria food plan.
Thank you to the over 200 Friends represented in submissions to the survey. You have helped to provide the impetus to confirm our blended gathering in early July 2023.
