Centering Prayer

We often think of prayer as thoughts or feelings expressed in words, but this is only one expression of prayer. Centering Prayer is a method of prayer that enables one to become quiet enough to sit in awareness of God's Presence. It is a prayer of choice, not of words.

Sr. Jo-Ann Jackowski, SFP, Facilitator

Dates: Every Tuesday
Time: 3:30 - 4 pm

For those who are new to the practice of Centering Prayer, please call Sr. Jo-Ann: (513) 761-9040 Ext. 156 or email her:

Connect with parents like you!

Welcome to the Beech Acres Parenting Center Meetup group.

We’re offering a free, monthly group for parents to gather, chat, share ideas, and hear from parent educators about important topics.

 

How do I know what’s “normal”?
Yes, it’s normal to wonder, “Is this normal?” As your child develops, you’ve probably asked this ques- tion of your mom, best friend, pediatrician, or your child’s teacher. We’ll talk about what are considered age-appropriate developmental tasks and how to encourage and support your child’s development.
