Advent Centering Prayer Retreat

December 8, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - December 10, 2023 @ 12:00 pm


This weekend retreat will focus on how Centering Prayer can heighten one’s understanding and appreciation for the season of Advent.

Centering Prayer is a form of Christian silent meditation where one lets go of thoughts during periods of prayer typically lasting 20 minutes. It is rooted in the self-emptying love that forms the heart of Jesus’ teaching and life. The effect on those who practice it is an every-increasing awareness of the God’s action and presence in the course of ordinary life.

Scholarship assistance is available. Please contact Reservations for application, Reservations@stmaryssewanee.org, 931-598-5342.
