Get WAY more details here (if the website looks familiar…it might be because Simon also designed that one…just sayin’).
For students going into grade 9 and older.
August 16 to 19, 2017 at Concordia University in Montreal, QC.
That’s right – Simon’s Motherland! All participants will be housed on campus.

There is also a pilgrimage bus available, leaving August 10 and returning August 24. See “Getting There” for more details.

You can get to Rendez-vous 2017 by air or by bus.

  • BY BUS:
    “BC Conference” is organizing a pilgrimage bus departing for Montreal on August 10 and returning August 24. You can join the pilgrimage one-way in either direction, or return. Prices vary according to your selection (see “COSTS”). This bus is lead and supervised by the staff of the United Church of Canada’s BC Conference. Click here for more details.

  • BY AIR:
    As an alternative to the BC Conference pilgrimage, we will be gathering a group of people who, for various reasons, may prefer to fly both ways.


    When booking, West Jet is offering a 10% discount for Rendez-Vous 2017 participants (CODE: OGYHUWH for travel between August 9 -26, 2017).
