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:
