Community

The intent of Contemplative Outreach is to foster the process of transformation in Christ in one another through the practice of the Centering Prayer

“Each day, as the worldwide Contemplative Outreach community gathers together in the silence we share, we are known and welcomed as loved ones.  I am together in God with my brothers and sisters who understand that oneness is the fruit of contemplative life.  There are no separations in God.”
- Gail Fitzpatrick-Hopler

Contemplative Outreach is a community of individuals and small prayer groups committed to living the contemplative dimension of the Gospel in everyday life.  A commitment to the daily practice of Centering Prayer is the primary expression of belonging.   These commitments transcend geographical, cultural and religious differences.

The international office of Contemplative Outreach Ltd. is in Butler, New Jersey and  provides material and prayerful support for each level of its community. At the heart of each local community are Centering Prayer groups, which make up local chapters. The local chapters, in turn, support regional groups, which together create a global community of oneness in silence.
