Introduction to Centering Prayer Weekend Retreat

January 13, 2023 - January 15, 2023

Centering Prayer is a form of Christian prayer rooted in the ancient Christian contemplative tradition.  Its purpose is to foster a deeper intimacy with Christ through the silence and stillness of contemplative prayer. This time of pandemic has led many to seek to deepen their relationship with God through this wordless prayer of contemplation.

This weekend retreat is designed for those new to Centering Prayer.  The participants will keep silence for the weekend, but there will be opportunities for questions and discussion about the practice.

Retreat Directors: Sister Mary McGehee, OSB, and Presbyterian minister, Rev. Mary Porter

Cost: Private Room $300
