Presbyterian College 2018 Cuba Study Tour – The Presbyterian College/Montreal School of Theology will hold its annual Cuba Study Tour in January 2018 and are welcoming a limited number of non-students to join the tour. The cost for the one-week study tour is $2,500/person and includes travel, accommodation, and most activities within Cuba. The purpose of the trip is to meet with Cuban Christians, to explore the identity of the church in Cuba, and to understand what it means for the church of Jesus Christ to find expression in different contexts. For more info, check out http://www.presbyteriancollege.ca/2017/08/join-the-cuba-study-tour/ . The deadline to apply is Sept 15, and non PC students must have a reference letter from their minister (in this case, Rev. Wendy). Rev. Wendy participated in the 2011 study tour and can also share more info on this enriching travel opportunity.
