Past Event Reviews


Ecumenical is derived from the Greek word Oikoumene, which means the whole inhabited world; in this sense, the Gabriola Ecumenical Society embraces all expressions of spirituality.

Spiritual connection is a universally human trait, though practices vary around the world and even among individuals of the same belief system. GES has always looked to Unity in Diversity and Spiritual Inclusivity as guideposts in our programming.
