Monthly Centering Prayer Day Away Retreat
August 4, 2023 @ 9:45 am - 2:15 pm$25.00
We meet the first Friday of the month at St. Francis Springs Prayer Center, 477 Grogan Rd., Stoneville, NC. The day begins at 9:45 am with 20 minutes Centering Prayer at 10 am led by a volunteer of our Centering Prayer group of 15 regulars. We then break and participants go in silence; they may walk the beautiful paths, walk the labyrinth, read in the library, or sit in prayer in the the chapel or any of the beautiful places at St. Francis. We gather together for lunch at noon which is prepared by volunteers at St. Francis. After lunch we go back into silence and meet together again at 1:40 pm for Centering Prayer and at 2 pm we have a sharing conversation. The day concludes around 2:15 pm. Participants are free to stay the rest of the afternoon or leave for home.
The cost is $25 for the use of the facility and the meal. We plan to meet the first Friday of every month.
