The Damigoong Bimiikaadwining (Ministries) Program is a program for Indigenous Catholics, based out of the Anishinabe Spiritual Centre near Espanola. The intention of the program is to train future local church leaders, but it is also a program for general and on-going formation. Our vision is of a thriving Indigenous Catholic Church; and we believe that this local Church is fully alive when there are not only local leaders; but when the culture and spirituality of the people is valued, promoted, and integrated into the faith and practice of the Church.



The  ASC welcomes groups for retreats or conferences,

Individuals and couples are also welcome, for spiritual retreats or for holidays.

About the Centre

The Anishinabe Spiritual Centre is a place of peace, a beautiful retreat space, a welcoming conference centre. It is an ideal setting for conferences, seminars, workshops, business meetings, group retreats, and directed and undirected individual retreats. Since 1981, ASC has welcomed many people, Native and non-Native, to deepen their spirituality, to become educated and trained in the leadership of their faith, and to retreat and recreate.


Our timber frame and log buildings offer comfortable, rustic accommodations. Situated in the wilderness of Northern Ontario, in the Manitoulin Island–North Shore region, our cottages are nestled among trees at the edge of scenic Anderson Lake.
