TAKING PLACE AT OUR FAMILY OF PARISHES DURING LENT:
at Saint Katharine Drexel 10-10:30, Fridays during Lent
What is Centering Prayer? Briefly, Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. (from http://www.centeringprayer.com/)
Gorzkie Zale (Bitter Lamentations) Sundays at 1 p.m. at St Stan’s and at 3 p.m. at St. John Gualbert.
