"Centering Prayer" is a method to practice the ancient prayer of the heart, commonly called contemplative prayer. It is a 20 minute time of silence where one seeks to be with God and consent to God's action and presence within. Following the period of silent prayer, there is a time for discussion of topics of spiritual importance ending with intercessory prayer. *Note: The Centering Prayer Group does not meet in July and August*
