By | Christian Formation, News, Outreach, Upcoming Events | No Comments

Join us for our Centering Prayer group on Wednesday evenings. The discipline of Centering Prayer will meet on Wednesday evenings beginning at 5:30 to sit together. We will have 2 twenty minute sessions each evening, the first from 5:30 until 5:50, and the second from 6:00 until 6:20, with a 10 minute break in between. The second “sit” will be followed by our regular Wednesday Eucharist. There will be no teaching involved, only the experience of sitting in silence before God in community. All are welcome to attend either one, or both if you like.
