What is Christian meditation? It’s an ancient practice of contemplative prayer, where one opens the mind and heart to silence, simplicity, and stillness. Like any practice, there are a few simple steps. Please join Genevieve Lane, Fr. Francis, and other meditators every Wednesday on Zoom, from 8:00 to 8:30 p.m., to practice together the art of Christian meditation.
The mission of our group is fellowship, sharing, and support for those on the contemplative path. We meet every first and third Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. in the convent. Each meeting includes 20 minutes of contemplative prayer and the reading of scriptural passages, the writings of Christian mystics and other material related to a monthly theme (e.g., humility, spiritual maturity, love, grace, and prayer). Participants are guided through a set of discussion questions designed to facilitate conversation around the month’s theme.
We seek to learn from one another as we explore the deeper meanings of Christ’s teachings and how to apply them in daily life. This group is directed to those who are given to study and conversation as a supplement to their spiritual practice.
Please put "Contemplatives in Conversation" in the email subject line.
Each Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm in the school faculty lounge, a group of people comes together to support one another through this difficult time and for as long as you need.
Our Saints Among Us class will involve preparation for the sacraments upon request of parents. The group meets after 11:15 a.m. Mass upstairs in the Parish Center one Sunday each month during the school year. Catholics from outside St. Mel Parish are welcome!
