Centering Prayer is a discipline of daily meditative practice to foster and deepen our relationship with God. It goes beyond conversation with Christ into communion with him, beyond words, thoughts or feelings. “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). Come join us, a great way to start Lent.
