Social Events

Our 2020 spring social is planned for  Sunday April 26th from 2 – 5 pm. Subadra Kappagoda has generously offered to host the gathering; Please bring a sweet or savory snack to share if you wish.
Opportunities to meet socially provide important support in our practice. Social connections are the glue that holds a group together and give us strength to keep practicing. Newcomers to our meetings are often looking to be part of a community and we would like you to feel welcome. Informal gatherings give us the chance to have fun with our dhamma friends and expand our network of relationships.



Other OBS socials include: volunteering at  a soup kitchen, pot-lucks, hikes and picnics which are held periodically throughout the year. These events are always listed in the OBS Activity Calendar. Next Shepherds of Good Hope Volunteer Day is Sunday, February 24th, 8:30 to 1 pm.

We also meet up for an informal gathering before each Friday Quaker House meditation — at the Wild Oat Bakery, 817 Bank Street. Ottawa at 6:30 pm. All are welcome.
