Contemplative Prayer Group


The contemplative prayer group encourages the spiritual enrichment through the contemplative practices of centering prayer and lectio divina.  One of our main purposes is to encourage a widespread renewal of the Contemplative Dimension of the Gospel.

Centering prayer is a simple method for accessing the gift of contemplation, which is not so much something we do as it is something God does in us with our willing consent and cooperation.  This is a silent, receptive way of praying based on the principle of the divine indwelling present within us as “temples of the Holy Spirit.”  The regular practice of this prayer initiates a dynamic of inner purification, healing and transformation where we move to “intimacy with God.”

The prayer group meets on Thursdays at 7 p.m. in the Parish Center, Room 151PC.
