The Contemplative Group at St. Patrick’s supports parishioners who have an interest in beginning or maintaining a practice of Centering Prayer. We notify members of opportunities to deepen this spiritual practice through readings, workshops, seminars or retreats. If you have an interest in learning more about this powerful practice, and perhaps accompanying one or more of us to a retreat, please contact Bonnie Stephenson, Sharon McWhorter or Anne Duncan to discuss. 

The next retreat, Call to Personal and Global Transformation,  will be held at Ignatius House on June 6-9, 2019. Please respond to Bonnie Stephenson ( ) if you would like to attend with her. For reservations, click here .

“Humanity as a whole, needs a breakthrough into the contemplative dimension of life. This is the Life at the heart of the world. There the human family is already one. If one goes to one’s own heart, one will find oneself in the heart of everyone else, and all in the heart of the Ultimate Mystery.”  -- Thomas Keating
