The Contemplative Prayer Ministry was formed with the purpose of kindling our awareness and deepening our relationship with God through the ancient Christian practice of contemplative prayer. We are people from St. James' and local area faith communities who find the practice of contemplative prayer a great support to our everyday work and ministry.
The ministry provides the opportunity for parishioners of St. James' and the wider church community to live the contemplative dimension of the Gospel through the practice of contemplative prayer. We experience Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina together weekly on Monday nights. Throughout the year, the ministry offers opportunities to learn about and experience contemplative prayer methods, such as Centering Prayer, sacred walk through the labyrinth, Taizé song, and Lectio Divina.
Here is what one member said about the value of meeting Monday nights:
Contemplative Prayer meets on Mondays at 7:30 p.m. in the Nave. Everyone is welcome. For more information, contact the Church Office.
