Do you yearn for the still, quiet voice of God?  Do you want to explore how to open to the divine indwelling?  Centering Prayer is a method designed to facilitate the development of contemplative Prayer by preparing our body, mind, and spirit to receive this gift. The Centering Prayer Introductory Program provides a basic definition of contemplative prayer in comparison to other kinds of prayer and expresses the intention of Contemplative Outreach to retrieve reclaim and re-appropriate the contemplative dimension of the gospel and share the gift of Centering Prayer with people of all faiths.

The Centering Prayer Workshop will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 9:00 to 12:30 p.m. Please arrive 15 minutes early. Location: St. Thomas’s Episcopal Church, 276 S. College Ave, Newark, DE 19711. To register, contact Kate Burchess at kkburchess@gmail.com or 443-406-7072.  Please leave message with name and phone number. Suggested Offering is $20.
