and come give silence a try.
Here at St. Francis more than 50 parishioners participate in the Centering prayer ministry, and many more are involved in some form of meditation or centering on their own. At our meetings we open with 25 minutes of silent prayer followed by reading and discussion of spiritual materials. Our group is open to all who have a desire for a deeper relationship with God – beyond the expression of thoughts and feelings expressed in words.
All are welcome.
Comments from centering practitioners
“I’ve come to understand that it’s part of the mystery of God.
If you become silent, the mystery will touch you.”
“It’s making space for God. It’s saying, I’m going to be quiet and listen.”
“It spills into your life. There’s a general sense of peacefulness.”
