Spirituality & Faith Formation
Centering Prayer is an ancient prayer of inner silence in the presence of God. These sessions use the centering prayer methods of Fr. Thomas Keating and the training materials from the Contemplative Outreach. Each session consists of a portion of Fr. Keating’s videos, a brief discussion and 30 minutes of centering prayer. This weekly gathering meets Wednesdays at 5:30 pm in Cor Jesu Chapel and all are welcome.

Songs & Prayer in the Spirit of Taizè
+ Christian Prayer by Candlelight +
This service includes meditative chanting, scripture, intercession, and reflective silence. Modeled on the prayer of the ecumenical religious community located at Taizè, in the south of Burgundy France, we concentrate on a mission of healing and reconciliation. The “songs of Taizè” used in the service concentrate on just a few words of faith, repeated again and again, as a beautiful way to enter more deeply into the presence of God. The use of English, Latin and other languages in the prayer reflects the global reality of the Body of Christ today. Together, we pray for our troubled world, our Church, our families, and all who suffer from poverty, violence or injustice.

The International Day of Peace ("Peace Day") - September 21 - provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date. It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly. Campus Ministry provides programming on this day centered on the multiple ways that peace can be kept, shared, and reflected upon.
