  • Centering Prayer

    All those interested in learning about and/or practicing Centering Prayer together with a group are invited to meet on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Preston Cutler Room.  Come once in a while or every week.  The goal of Centering Prayer is to open ourselves to God by surrendering our own thoughts and listening for God in silence.
