zCentering Prayer (Autumn 2021)


Weekly Centering Prayer

Sponsored by the Cenacle (and facilitated by Jackie Herbach) is offered virtually on Mondays at 10am Central in the Autumn of 2021

(Monday October 18,  25; November 1, 8, 15, 22, 29; December 6)


All are welcome.  For those unfamiliar, Centering Prayer with the Cenacle is 50 minutes and is a method of mostly silent, contemplative prayer. This method of prayer employs lecio divina and visio divina, reading a particular passage or seeing a particular image and then praying about that, singularly, as best one can. This is a guided prayer. You do not need to attend all eight days.

(Free will offering is appreciated)
