Paul has recently joined the board after moving back to his home in the Kawartha Lakes area and was looking for ways to have impact in the community in which he lives. The mission and outcome of the work that the Abbey Retreat Centre performs resonated deeply with him so he was thrilled and humbled when an offer to join the board was extended. Paul currently works for the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Physical and Health Education and has served on 3 separate not for profit boards in the GTA. Paul is looking forward to working with his colleagues, the Abbey Retreat Centre staff, and all stakeholders to bring stability and growth to the incredibly important work that the Abbey Retreat Centre performs in supporting those with cancer and their key/support people/caregivers.

After 4 months of listening, creativity, small group conversations and A LOT OF COMMUNITY SUPPORT, the decision has been made. Within the next few months, Abbey Retreat Centre (ARC) will officially change our name to Brooksong Retreat and Cancer Support Centre.
