Centering Prayer Group

Add Thu, Sep 1 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

in the Herrick Conference Room in the parish center (lower church).

A portion of the time will involve Centering Prayer, which is a practice of silent prayer that prepares participants to experience God’s presence within us moving beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Him.

There will also be time for Lectio Divina (“divine reading”) that allows participants to listen to Scripture with the “ear of the heart” as if in conversation with Christ as He suggests the topics for discussion, which come from thoughts, images and insights. The group’s purpose is to help sustain a commitment to this regular prayer practice and to accompany one another on this spiritual journey.

Those interested in these traditional prayer practices are welcome to join this group and should contact Mary Jane Roche at or Michelle Freeman at
