The Chemin Neuf Community arrived in Winnipeg in 2010 following an invitation from the Archdiocese of St-Boniface. Ted and Nancy Wood, two Community members from Winnipeg came to explore the possibility of establishing the Community in this province of Canada.
A year later, the Missionary Oblate Sisters generously donated the St-Charles Retreat Center to the Chemin Neuf community. Located in the western part of the city of Winnipeg on the banks of the Assiniboine River, the Community House serves the mission of the Community.
Currently, the Community offers healing meetings for young adults (18-30 years old), married couples and young families (Cana mission), and spiritual formation retreats. The St-Charles Retreat Center can also receive any other organization or Christian group for meetings or retreats.
You are also welcome to live a time of service for one or the other of the missions or to take a spiritual stay alone, with your family, or in a group. However, the missions are restricted due to the current pandemic.
