Tom’s Legacy

About This Event

Our Maintenance and Grounds Coordinator, Tom Hunt, is retiring from Five Oaks after 23 years of faithful service. Tom has always said that Five Oaks is not his place of employment, but a place where he lives out his ministry. As those of you who know Tom will attest, his example of selfless ministry is one that shines as a beacon for us all.

We asked Tom how we could show our appreciation for his years of service. In typical Tom form, he did not have anything in mind for himself. He has said that he would feel most honoured by substantial gifts to Five Oaks Centre to which he has given so much of his time, energy, love and spirit.

We invite you to use this opportunity to make a donation to Five Oaks.

A priority project is the renovation of the Summer Centre Dining Hall. This project honours the countless hours Tom has given to keep this building in service over the years (and hopefully many more to come). Any amount you choose to give will be gratefully received and will be well used to support the renewed ministry of the Five Oaks Education and Retreat Centre.

Charitable receipts will be issued for all donations so we are asking you to enter your email and address for transmission of the receipt.


** note at this time the button says “register”, though we mean it to say “donate now”.  Please accept this minor flaw in the presentation of the function.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
