A Centering Prayer Meditation group will meet on Saturday, February 8 in the Hallam Chapel from 8:30 to 10 AM. Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us.

Karla Umland, Ron Ward and Emma Palzere-Rae will be taking photos for our Instagram & Facebook pages. Please don’t be alarmed if they are taking photos as she is doing it to augment our social media presence and witness to the Gospel. If there is a problem having your picture placed on social media, please reach out to Fr. Ranjit.
