Part with a Purpose!

Sorrento Centre is organizing a number of 'Party with a Purpose' events - open conversations and presentations to learn more about Sorrento's future plans and campaign.

The parties are for supporters and interested people in your area (BC and Alberta).

If you would like more information on attending one of these parties, please email Andrea Gaillus or phone the Sorrento Centre office (250.675.2421) for more information.

It's a great time to reconnect with the Centre. If you know someone who you think might be interested in being invited to a 'party' please email us.

Overview: Re-Founding Sorrento Centre for the Next 50 Years

Sorrento Centre is a holy place
of transformation for learning,
healing and belonging.

Sorrento Centre was founded in 1963. In 2013 we celebrated our 50th anniversary. For 50 years we have been enjoying the gifts provided by the previous generation. What gifts will we leave behind to nurture the next generation of leaders?

At Sorrento Centre memorable experiences can stimulate profound changes in understanding self-perception and relationship. Such life-changing experiences transform us.

People are drawn by its tranquility, serenity and peacefulness.

Psychologically, emotionally and spiritually we all seek wholeness, we all seek healing. Central to that search is our need for community. When guests come to Sorrento they find an ongoing but ever changing community that is welcoming and accepting. They quickly feel they belong.

It is this combination of holiness, learning, healing and community that makes Sorrento Centre unique.
