Centering Prayer Introductory Workshop – Sept 10 and 17, 2017

St. Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church
Sundays, September 10 & 17
12noon to 2pm (each day)

The workshop will be presented in four hours over two Sundays and is open to people of all faith traditions.

Contemplative prayer is God’s personal and unique gift to us. This workshop will examine how Centering Prayer can open us to this gift and deepen our relationship with God. If we are open to God’s gift of contemplation, it will profoundly affect the way we think and act and it can lead to greater inner stability, hope, peace and happiness.  Come learn the deeper path to prayer and relationship promised by Matt 6:6 – But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then, your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

For a deeper appreciation of the place of contemplative prayer in your life, attendance at both sessions is encouraged.  However, if you can attend only on September 10th, you will get a great introduction to the prayer practice.
