Evening of Contemplative Prayer

Evening of Contemplative Prayer

There’s a lot demanding our attention. The best thing to cut through the noise? Space to hear God speak. You don’t need a crowd of people or a big cathedral to have a conversation with God, but there’s undeniable power in experiencing prayer together under one roof.

Join us for a simple time of quiet presence to the merciful heart of God within us and within our broken/ blessed world. We will shelter the gift of silence with a guided invitation to prayer and the availability of supportive practices. Please call each week to confirm participation and location.

Presenter: Maria DiBello, RSM
Mondays, though May 20, 2019, 7-8 p.m.

Cost: $20/session

The Engaging Active Hope workshop series explores practical ways to address climate change. The series draws on the work of the eco-philosopher Joanna Macy and is about finding and offering our best response to the crisis of sustainability unfolding in our world. At the heart of this workshop series is the idea that Active Hope is something we do rather than have. It involves being clear about what we hope for and then playing our role in the process of bringing that about. The journey of finding and offering our unique contribution to the Great Turning helps us to discover new strengths, open to a wider network of allies and experience a deepening of our aliveness.

The critical passage or hinge of the workshop happens when, instead of privatizing, repressing and pathologizing our pain for the world (be it fear, grief, outrage or despair), we honor it. We learn to re-frame it as suffering-with or compassion. This brings us back to life.

All sessions will use the book Active Hope: How to Face  the Mess We’re in without Going Crazy by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone
