INTRODUCTION TO CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER RETREAT AT BETHANY RETREAT CENTER

Beginning with a 9:30 a.m. Mass, Bethany Retreat Center Services is presenting an Introduction to Contemplative Prayer Retreat on Sunday, September 28th from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Bethany Retreat Center in Frenchville. A brunch will follow the morning Mass, then participants will learn a method which prepares them to receive the gift of Contemplative Prayer. It consists of responding to the Spirit of Christ by consenting to God's presence and action within. A contemporary presentation of Centering Prayer is silent communion with God beyond concepts, words and images. Contemplative Prayer is meant to enrich and complement other forms of prayer, not to exclude or replace them; it is at the same time a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. Offering is $25 per person. For more information or to register, call 814-263-4855.
