Centering Prayer

"Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10


"Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, in which we experience God's presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself." It moves us from conversation with Christ to communion with him.

During Centering Prayer, we sit in silence for 20 minutes, consenting to God's presence and action within, followed by Lectio Divina and reflection. The fruits of this prayer become evident in our daily lives.

Members of Centering Prayer meet the second and fourth Sundays of the month at 6:00pm in the Emmaus Room of the Parish Office. Alternate Sundays are via ZOOM.

All are welcome, whether Centering Prayer is a part of your daily practice or you are interested in experiencing this form of prayer.
