Centering Prayer at the Cathedral

Do you seek the still, quiet voice of God? Contemplative prayer is a way to experience God in quietness of spirit. It is God’s personal and unique gift to us, and has been a part of our Christian heritage for centuries. If we are open to the gift of contemplation, it may profoundly affect our daily life.

Centering prayer is a particular type of contemplative prayer that connects us with God in sacred silence. Christ Church Cathedral is pleased to offer both a weekly group practice of centering prayer, and a half-day workshop to introduce you to centering prayer if it is new to your experience of spiritual practice.

Weekly centering prayer practice

MONDAYS @ 5:30 PM

Every week our Cathedral Centering Prayer Group gathers for an hour of rest in God\’s presence, meeting God in the sound of sheer silence. We begin each week with a brief check in with everyone, followed by a spiritual reading and 20 minutes of silent meditation, concluded by the Lord\’s Prayer together. Learn more about Centering Prayer in our upcoming workshop and consider joining us.

Centering Prayer Workshop

SATURDAY, MARCH 27 @ 9 AM  – 12:30 PM

This half-day workshop will:

  • present the method of the Centering Prayer
  • help us to understand the indwelling Presence of God within each of us and our intimate relationship with that Presence
  • explore its benefits in ordinary life

Time will be allowed for the practice of centering prayer. All are welcome to attend and participate!
