A Ministry of the Sisters of Bon Secours

Quiet Mornings – December

December 18 @ 9:30 am - 10:45 am

Mass, liturgy, silence, meditation

Ever wish you had time set apart for quiet prayer? Or, perhaps a mini-morning retreat? Do you desire structure to support an ongoing practice, but need flexibility too? We hold these every month. You can take part whenever you’d like to match your schedule/desire/need. Interested adults are invited to gather with us at 9:30am for introductions and a short gathering prayer. We will move into silence from 9:45 to 10:35am. During that time, individuals might elect to stay in the meeting space or visit the chapel, walk the labyrinth, sit by the pond, etc… At 10:35 am we will regather briefly for a common prayer of thanksgiving and closing. You may also enjoy reading this September, 2015 article about Quiet Mornings from the Baltimore Sun newspaper. Please click here.

Guided by spiritual director Joanne Cahoon, DMin.

You may arrive early and purchase breakfast for $10. Served from 8-9:30 am. Or, stay for the 11:00 am Mass and purchase a $10 meal ticket for the 12:00 pm lunch, if you’d like.

Joanne M. Cahoon holds a BA in Religious Studies; MA in Religion/Pastoral Ministry; Graduate Certificates in spiritual direction and in spirituality studies; and a Doctor of Ministry degree from the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, where her specialization was spirituality and practical theology.
