Encountering Christ through Prayer

Encountering Christ through Prayer Presentations

On Saturday mornings in January, we explored different prayer styles.

Encountering God through Adoration: Christ is sacramentally present to us through the Eucharist. Adoration is an opportunity and a gift that we have to encounter Christ in a very special way. Learn about the history of Adoration, the meaning behind it, and ways to enhance your Adoration practices.  Presenter:  Eileen Mayette, Lay Ecclesial Minister/Religious Educator

Encountering God through Centering Prayer: In the busyness of life, taking time to quiet our minds in prayer can draw us closer to our Lord and allow us to find ways to continually center our lives in  Christ. Take time to learn how Centering Prayer can enrich your prayer practice with this century-old form of Catholic contemplation.  Presenter:  Nancy Hess, Centering Prayer Leader and Instructor
