Centering Prayer Group

May 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating indefinitely

Two centering prayer groups meet on alternating Wednesday nights, 7:00-8:00 pm, in the retreat and guest house, room 10. Both incorporate a short reading and time for silent prayer or meditation.

  • 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month:  includes a short walking meditation in between periods of seated meditation
  • 2nd, 4th and 5th Wednesdays of the month:  includes brief shared responses to the reading

Attendance varies from 4 to 14, depending on the night, and all are welcome in both groups. Participants share these affirmations for this opportunity of engaging in centering prayer with others:

We feel the presence of the Holy One even more strongly than when we center by ourselves. … Our prayer has less outward distractions for that hour than if we center at home. … Having the group supports us in our prayer life. 

Centering prayer groups meet in room 10 (St. Benedict Room) in the lower level of the retreat & guest house. Please park behind the retreat & guest house and access room 10 from the lower level door. For more information contact Barb Abbott, 608-284-7424 or Carole Kretschman, 608-233-7390.
