Centering Prayer every Saturday at 9:00 am in the Parish Center
Silent prayer, first practiced by the Desert Fathers, was re-introduced in the modern era by three monks who taught that this form of silent prayer is not solely for those in monasteries. If you would like to renew or deepen your prayer life, you are most welcome. We have 20 minutes of silence and a vocal prayer.
