House of Prayer in the City

The House of Prayer in the City is now in our new location at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on Lake of the Isles (1917 Logan Avenue South in Minneapolis), an extension of our ministry in Collegeville, MN. Offering weekly Christian contemplation, retreats and hospitality, this day-use space is an oasis in the city.

St. Paul’s is located at 1917 Logan Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55403.

 

This work in Minneapolis allows the leadership to offer weekly classes and regular contemplative practice, as well as day retreats, liturgies and a variety of offerings, as well as an office and a place for individual spiritual direction, when needed. This effort continues to be experimental and evolving as we seek to reach out to a broader audience, meeting the spiritual challenges of our society.

We welcome your comments and suggestions and encourage you to pass the word to others to whom these programs might be appealing.
