CANCELLED TONIGHT: Contemplative Prayer Teaching

January 29 @ 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM



Contemplative Prayer: Teaching


Grand Examen

January’s spiritual practice will be the Grand Examen. Similar to St. Ignatius of Loyola’s Daily Examen, the Grand Examen uses discovery questions to help one look back over their past year and notice the movements of God in their life – where they sensed God’s absence and presence, highlights, turning points, landmarks, and themes. All to help you look forward to 2019.


Each week will build on the next. You do not need to be at previous sessions to attend, however, the practice flows best if you are able to attend each evening. Feel free to bring your journal and/or calendar from 2018 to help guide the process. Paper and pens will be provided. We will begin with our 30 minute meditation period at 7pm.

Exploring other spiritual disciplines

Each Tuesday from 7 – 8:15 PM in the Chapel, we learn other ways to enter into contemplative prayer. We believe that contemplative prayer is a gift or a grace from God and that there are many ways to enter into that gift. We focus not only on meditation but also on other contemplative spiritual practices, discussions and readings. Following this time of exploration, there is space and silence to process and share individual experiences.
