Metaphysical Ministry of Canada

Metaphysical Ministry of Canada

(Bancroft Centre for Awakening Spiritual Growth)

March 29, 2016

We are pleased to announce that we are now appointed the Canadian Representative in March 2016 for the International Metaphysical Ministry including the University of Metaphysics & the University of Sedona. We will be working very closely with the University and carrying on Dr. Masters legacy here in Canada.

My name is Rev. Rita Marie Browning, B.Msc., I Graduated from the University of Metaphysics in February 2006. In 2007 I started the Bancroft Centre for Awakening Spiritual Growth. We are a Not-For-Profit centre and recognized by the Ontario Government as a religious body. We meet every second Sunday for fellowship and personal growth. I am also an Alternative Therapist and teach Reiki and other Healing Modalities, Intuitive Studies, and hold a Certificate with the National Guild of Hypnotists.

We welcome all students from the University of Metaphysics and the University of Sedona. Here in Ontario we offer the Ministers their marriage rites with the Ontario Marriage Office so that they can solemnize weddings. I wanted to be able to help other Ministers get started on their new path. Our denomination is Metaphysical; our teachings are Metaphysical. The Ordination Ceremony is held every September to recognize those Ministers that have taken a step towards opening their own centre or wanting to solemnize marriages.

We are looking at becoming recognized as a religious body in the other provinces, so that all ministers may be able to officiate marriages. I will be looking for help from the provinces to put this into action. Please email me and let me know if you can help our Ministry grow.

Our goal is to grow a family of like-minded Metaphysical Ministers who enjoy sharing their time and networking. We offer assistance wherever we are needed. We only ask that whatever path you are on, you do it in love and light. We are in the process of creating a website for all the Ministers to join. This website will bring all the Ministers together so that you may all offer your services to the public, as well as your fellow Ministers. New classes and information will soon be available on this website.

We offer ministry classes covering aspects of the Marriage and what your legal requirements are for Ontario. These classes continue your education concerning Marriage Rites and setting up your own Ministry. I cover topics such as filling out the marriage license and your obligations to the government. During this class, you will have a chance to go through a mock marriage ceremony and learn how to write a ceremony.

We offer Pastoral Care and a Ceremony of Life course, as well. For further information, you can see a list of classes on the website site at Other than a one-day marriage class, I teach all Ministry classes on line, through the Meta-Spiritual Teaching Centre. This is of great help to those who cannot travel.

I am in contact with all the Ministers by phone, Skype, or email. I offer assistance for your spiritual growth and path. I offer a networking between all the ministers so that you may never feel like you are walking this path alone.

As part of our membership cost, $150.00 a year, you are listed on our Marriage Page, and will receive ongoing help regarding your ministry. Once you are ordained, we offer a closed Face book group, where you can ask questions, correspond, and network with other ministers. We issue Ministry cards that are sent each year when membership dues are received.

Feel free to contact Rev Rita Marie at the above phone number or email for assistance at or 613-334-2943
