October 8 - November 19
Thursdays at 6:45am
During these times of much uncertainty, practices that ground us, settle us, and connect us to the presence of Jesus are becoming more and more needed. Starting October 8th, we will be offering a weekly opportunity to practice Centering Prayer in community. We will be meeting the next seven Thursdays on Zoom in the wee morning hour of 6:45am for 30 minutes. No experience necessary. If you are new to Centering Prayer, we will provide you with instruction and information about this type of contemplative prayer. Feel free to drop in when can or join us for all seven weeks. Register below for the weekly link.
Spiritual practices that set time apart in quiet prayer are considered contemplative prayer practices. With so many unknowns, grief and stress in today’s world, contemplative prayer provides time to be calm, still and become aware of the Spirit. Within this quiet time, our hearts begin to open to feel God's presence, God’s love and God’s attention.
Centering Prayer is a contemplative practice that has a set process to follow. At the same time, it is a fluid prayer that is forgiving and transformative and personal [with] intentional silence to sit with God, to experience God’s love and attention. (From the Loyola Spirituality Center)
