Centering Prayer Group
S. Virginia Matter OSB
Centering prayer is a form of prayer that takes practice. Each week St. Paul’s Monastery hosts a time for those seeking to strengthen their practice of centering prayer under the guidance of S. Virginia Matter OSB.
First Friday Prayer Vigil
First Fridays 7p
Karin Barrett, musician and liturgist for the monastery was convinced of the need to assemble to pray for the concerns of our time. “We want to extend a wide invitation and create a welcoming environment for people to come to pray what is on their hearts.” No registration necessary. Walk-ins welcome.
Dementia Support Group
Second Tuesdays 7-9p
Steve Arnold Oblate
Loving and supporting someone with dementia can result in exhaustion as well as grief from lost relationships, dreams and freedom. Come be with others on the journey. Chaplain and spiritual director Steve Arnold provides a time for caregivers to share stories, feelings, frustrations, and joys. Check-in and introductions are followed by discussion around various issues connected with dementia. Find full acceptance whatever the topic. Walk-ins welcome.
Third Fridays 7p
Taizé prayer uses simple chants based on the Scriptures and periods of silence to create an environment for encountering the mystery of God. This time of quiet, gentle communal prayer can help dispel the accumulated burdens of the week and free one for the renewal of a weekend. No registration necessary. Walk-ins welcome.
