Centering Prayer Group
August 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating indefinitely
Two centering prayer groups meet on alternating Wednesday nights, 7:00-8:00 pm, in the retreat and guest house, room 10. Both incorporate a short reading and time for silent prayer or meditation.
- 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month: includes a short walking meditation in between periods of seated meditation
- 2nd, 4th and 5th Wednesdays of the month: includes brief shared responses to the reading
Attendance varies from 4 to 14, depending on the night, and all are welcome in both groups. Participants share these affirmations for this opportunity of engaging in centering prayer with others:
We feel the presence of the Holy One even more strongly than when we center by ourselves. … Our prayer has less outward distractions for that hour than if we center at home. … Having the group supports us in our prayer life.
Centering prayer groups meet in room 10 (St. Benedict Room) in the lower level of the retreat & guest house. Please park behind the retreat & guest house and access room 10 from the lower level door. For more information contact Barb Abbott, 608-284-7424 or Carole Kretschman, 608-233-7390.
