The Psalms: Prayers for These Times

October 21, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

  • 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. To register, please select ONE of the following options.
  • Explore the life and gifts of Hildegard of Bingen, a Benedictine visionary, artist, composer, and physician who lived in the 1100s. This retreat will include reflection on many of her visions, using her remarkable paintings and writings. We will also ponder some of her suggestions for living a deeper spiritual life, as well as enjoy music she composed for liturgical prayer. There will be time for personal reflection and some group sharing.
