Introduction to Centering Prayer Weekend Retreat
January 19, 2024 - January 21, 2024
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 and gives a first step in learning this form of 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 a volunteer from Contemplative Outreach Birmingham
Cost: Private Room $300
