Chapel of St. Mary
9:45 AM – Thursdays
Although with ancient roots, Centering Prayer is largely a contemporary form of meditation which originated in Benedictine monasteries, was picked up by many Christian denominations, and whose leading theorist is an Episcopal priest, Cynthia Bourgeault. Practitioners strive to meditate twice a day, either alone or in community, seeking to find the Lord in silence and calming attention.
Centering Prayer begins with a psalm, a short reading, a few minutes of Taize music, and then 20 minutes of silence. For more information, contact Steve Graff.
