“Introduction to Prayer” Series

TO REGISTER: [email protected]

We are offering a series of six small group sessions focused on deepening our understanding of and commitment to prayer as a Catholic Christian community. These sessions will be structured to explore the meaning and practice of Christian prayer with opportunities for vocal and silent prayer as well as group interaction and sharing regarding the topics explored. Our hope is that an ongoing Contemplative Prayer Group will emerge from this experience.
