MORNINGS AND EVENINGS OF PRAYER
In keeping with our desire to share our spiritual gifts and resources with others, Morning and Evenings of Prayer are offered. These prayer experiences include a presentation on a particular theme, time for quiet prayer and reflection, an opportunity to share and a communal closing prayer. Simple hospitality is part of each gathering.
AT-HOME DIRECTED RETREAT
This is an opportunity to make a retreat in the midst of your daily life. It is particularly attractive to and helpful for people who cannot get away overnight, for a weekend or a longer period of time. The retreatant commits to pray each day at home or wherever you wish for 30 – 60 minutes. You also agree to meet with a trained director for approximately 45 minutes each day to share what is happening between you and God in your prayer and throughout your day. Together with the director you will discern your interior movements in relation to God and the director may offer some suggestions for your ongoing prayer. If you make this retreat along with other people who are also seeking quality time for prayer and a deepening relationship with God, there is often a general meeting for all the retreatants prior to the retreat to establish guidelines, helps and to set up time for your daily meeting with the director.
MEETING CHRIST IN PRAYER
Meeting Christ in Prayer is an engaging eight-week guided prayer experience designed for small groups. It is modeled on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. By means of prayer, reflection, and faith sharing, Meeting Christ in Prayer introduces participants to various ways of praying, helps one to form regular habits of prayer, and provides one with an opportunity to meet Christ anew and to experience support in the Christian life in a new way.

AGING IN GRACE
This program is for mid-life and older adults. It can be presented as a morning, day of reflection or as an 8 week session and is ideal for parishes and other groups. It is especially helpful to those in transition, pondering retirement, seniors or those just plain aging. The program considers one’s spirituality and adult life stages as one approaches life’s important transitions. Coordinator: Kathleen Hagerty, CSJ
