We would like to invite you to an Introductory Centering Prayer Workshop this Advent, on Saturday December 4th from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm at Holy Cross Catholic Community, 5650 Vista Boulevard, Sparks NV 89436.
The centering prayer workshop will teach a method of silent prayer that is rooted in the Christian contemplative heritage. It is a gentle silent method of consenting to Godʼs presence and healing action within us. By taking time to “rest in God” each day, we open ourselves to the gift of Godʼs presence. Come learn more about this prayer method.
The program includes talks by Contemplative Outreach presenters and instructional DVDs by Fr. Thomas Keating, O.C.S.O. and Fr. Basil Pennington, O.C.S.O. Participants will practice Centering Prayer together at each meeting. There will be time for questions and discussion. There will be six follow-up sessions on zoom each Wednesday evening thereafter, 6 - 7 PM, December 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th and January 5th and 12th. The book Open Mind Open Heart by Fr. Thomas Keating will be available for purchase. Coffee and tea will be provided, please bring a food item to share.
To register for the workshop and assist in planning please call Therese at (775) 901-8033.
