Days of Prayer

Monday, October 2, 2017 – DAY OF PRAYER – The Good Shepherd

(9:30am - 3:00pm)  Includes Breakfast and Lunch
Led by Judy Schiavo

At least ten times in the Gospels Jesus refers to himself as Shepherd and we as his sheep. In our own industrial and social media age, how do these images help us to deepen our experience of God?  Come, find out, and spend a day in prayer and reflection.

Saturday, March 10, 2018 – DAY OF PRAYER – Awareness

(9:30am - 3:00pm)  Includes Breakfast and Lunch
Led by Marie Santana

Our Gospels are filled with unnamed people who lead us to God.  Spend a day of prayer reflecting on some of the "Hidden Women of The Gospels."  Based on Kathy Coffey's book, these reflections invite us to participate more deeply in Jesus' life and teachings.  

Saturday, April 14, 2018 – DAY OF PRAYER – Making a Decision? An Ignatian Approach to Decision Making

(9:30am - 3:00pm)  Includes Breakfast and Lunch
Led by Marie Santana

What should I do? How many times have you asked yourself that question? Ignatius includes a well-thought out series of practices, techniques, and skills based in the spiritual life which highlights that good decision making is a combination of faith and reason. Trust your heart, and use your head too!

By making good decisions, you bring yourself closer to God. Learn to understand how interior movements in your heart can guide you, through Consolation and Desolation. And, become more aware of God's messages towards better realizing your life goals. (This is an introduction to Discernment of Spirits)

Thursday, May 17, 2018 – DAY OF PRAYER – Pentecost: A Time to Awaken

(9:30am - 3:00pm)  Includes Breakfast and Lunch
Led by Anna Graziano

Pentecost is among the four major holidays in the Christian year. On Christmas, there is much pomp and circumstance; on Good Friday there are special traditional services; Easter is the Great Halleluiah! On Pentecost, we greet the descent of the Holy Spirit with a kind of silence rather than the joyful shouts so deserved.

Everything is different because now the Holy Spirit has come upon us through Jesus, who died and rose from the dead and is now living at the right hand of God and sends forth his Spirit upon us. The more we reflect on that, we are drawn into the joy of the message of Jesus.
