In 1999, the Dayspring chapel moved to a beautiful new building adjacent to the pond designed by architect Joe Lobko. The themes of solitude, community and ministry are echoed in this sacred structure, which includes space for worship, contemplation, meetings, day programs, formation and retreats.
Retreats for high school students have become an integral part of the Dayspring when schools are in session. Historically, Dayspring has been an event venue for Holocaust Education Week in November, monthly gatherings of a Sacred Circle Dance and other community groups that find safety in its walls.
L’Arche Daybreak is a non-denominational, interfaith community that welcomes people from all spiritual traditions. Our regular worship services are on a revolving schedule that includes the Anglican, Roman Catholic, United Church and Taizé traditions. Periodically, the community commemorates special feasts in the Jewish and Islamic traditions. Our spiritual life reflects the rich inter-religious and multi-cultural diversity of our community members.
