Weekly Programs

Wednesday Night Christian Contemplative Prayer – Live gathering cancelled d/t Covid-19, join us virtually (link).

All are welcome to join us on Wednesdays in Collegeville from 5:30-6:30 for Contemplative Prayer. Free and open to the public, we sit together in the Oratory. The prayer begins with a simple chant, and we observe two 20-minute periods of silent prayer with a contemplative walk in between, concluding with a simple chant. If you are coming for the first time, we recommend you arrive ten minutes early so we can welcome you and introduce you to the practice and space.

Immediately following prayer, Christine Luna Munger will present a short 15 minute introductory teaching on Contemplative Prayer.  If you would like to remain for this teaching, please stay in the Oratory following the close of prayer.
