Friday Morning Centering Prayer Group

You are invited to embark on a new adventure being offered at Westminster! Beginning Friday, 11 January 2019, an intentional Centering Prayer Group is planning to meet in the Library at 10:00 am on a weekly basis — January 11, 18 and 25. If there is enough interest the group continue on at a time and frequency that suites the participants. Centering Prayer will begin promptly at 10:00 am followed by Lectio Divina. It is expected that by 11:00 am this will be completed, giving people an opportunity to leave.  For those who would like to stay, there will be an opportunity for discussion, fellowship and prayer — wrapping up by 12:00 noon. Sponsored by the Inner and Outer Connections Committee. (There is no cost.)
