*Please note that the July Centering Prayer sessions will begin with the 2nd week of the month, due to the occupancy needs at the Center during the first week of the month. We will meet on July 10 at 7pm; July 17 at 1pm; July 24 at 7pm and July 31 at 1pm since there are five Tuesdays in July. We apologize for the adjustment to the schedule this month.
Centering Prayer sessions are held weekly. On the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month it is held from 1-2pm and then on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday each month it will be held in the evening. (If there is a 5th Tuesday in a month, there will not be one held.) If lunch is being served at our Center on this day, you are welcome to arrive at noon and purchase a meal ticket too ($10). Please call us at 410-442-3120 to let our staff know that you’d like to purchase lunch.
Centering Prayer is a form of Christian contemplative prayer, in which one abides in the Presence of God in interior silence. Centering Prayer emphasizes the indwelling Presence of the Holy Trinity within and among us, and our openness, through receptive silence and restful surrender, to God’s action and healing grace. For our one-hour sessions, we will gather to pray together in silence, attentive to the stillness within, and reflect together on readings related to our prayer life. The sessions are relaxed and informal. You are invited to dress comfortably and feel free to bring a meditation cushion, if you would like. Please arrive 5 minutes early so that we can begin promptly at 7pm.
Facilitation for each Centering Prayer session will be led by an experienced member of the group, both staff and from the community. We follow a consistent format from week to week, with variability each session in the reflective reading that is shared. Coordinated by Amy Kulesa.Registration isn't necessary. Please sign in at the front desk upon arrival. Thank you.
