Introduction to Centering Prayer (zoom) 2022 January 22, Saturday @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm CST
Offered again: February 23, Wednesday @ 10:00 am – 3:00 PM CST (zoom)
Centering Prayer is a form of Christian prayer rooted in the ancient Christian contemplative tradition. Its purpose is to foster a deeper intimacy with Christ through the silence and stillness of contemplative prayer. This time of pandemic has led many to seek to deepen their relationship with God through this wordless prayer of contemplation.
This workshop/retreat is designed for those new to Centering Prayer and will be held over Zoom. A reliable internet connection with the capability for audio and video is required. There will be opportunities for questions and discussion.
Retreat Directors: Sister Mary McGehee
The Welcoming Prayer - for those who practice Centering Prayer
March 16, Wednesday @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm CST (zoom)
In this time of Pandemic with so much to deal with, the practice of The Welcoming Prayer can be most helpful. The Welcoming Prayer is a method of consenting to God’s presence and action in our physical and emotional reactions to events and situations in daily life. The purpose of the Welcoming Prayer is to deepen our relationship with God through consenting in the ordinary activities of our day — “consent-on-the-go.”
A reliable internet connection with the capability for audio and video is required. There will be opportunities for questions and discussion. Prerequisite: Introduction to Centering Prayer or an established Centering Prayer practice.
Retreat Director: Sister Mary McGehee, OSB
