Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer is a method designed to facilitate the development of contemplative prayer by preparing our faculties to receive this gift. Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer; rather it casts a new light and depth of meaning on them.

The Cathedral Centering Prayer group meets meets every Monday evening from 6:45 pm to 8:15 pm in the North Meeting Room. The format of our sessions is as follows:

  1. a 20-minute sit
  2. lectio divina with faith sharing
  3. a second 20-minute sit

All are welcome to join us for these sessions. If you are not familiar with the Centering Prayer method, we will introduce you to it before we begin. If you think you want to make Centering a regular practice, we will let you know where and when introductory workshops are held. In these workshops, you learn more about the theological underpinnings of the Centering Prayer method.

If you have questions, please email Barbara Wuest or call her at 414/332-8807.
