Event Series Event Series: Contemplative Prayer

Nave Open for Prayer & Meditation

October 10, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

MOST TUESDAYS, 7–8 P.M., in the cathedral nave

UPDATE: Tonight, Tuesday, October 10, 7–8 p.m., in lieu of the regularly-scheduled Contemplative Prayer gathering, the nave of Saint Mark’s will be open to all for silent meditation and prayers for peace.

Centering Prayer gatherings have relaunched as Contemplative Prayer. The gatherings will still begin with a period of silent meditation, followed by discussions on a variety of contemplative practices including Centering Prayer

This time of meditative prayer is open to anyone who yearns for a time to simply sit in the presence of the Divine—whether you sit regularly and miss doing it with others, are curious, or think you can’t do it, come, sit together and talk about it. There is no doing it right or wrong; there is only doing it. Read more here. These sessions will be led by Phil Fox Rose, who was introduced to centering prayer by Cynthia Bourgeault in the early 90s and has been practicing and sharing it ever since. Email Phil with questions: phil@philfoxrose.com

Note: Contemplative Prayer is always suspended on the Tuesdays when a Taizé service is offered, and occasionally for other events in the nave.
