St. Margaret of Scotland has started a Centering Prayer group for parishioners and community members. What is Centering Prayer?
Prayer Groups Centering Prayer
- …is a method of prayer which prepares us to receive the gift of God’s presence, traditionally called contemplative prayer. It consists of responding to the Spirit of Christ by consenting to God’s presence and action within.
- …facilitates the movement from more active modes of prayer into a receptive prayer of resting in God. It is at the same time a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.
- …is drawn from ancient prayer practices of the Christian contemplative heritage, notably the Fathers and Mothers of the Desert, Lectio Divina (praying the scriptures), The Cloud of Unknowing, and the writings of St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila.
- …is practiced by Catholics and welcomes ecumenical and interfaith participation as well. (some of this information is from Contemplative Outreach Ltd.)
The sacramental moments in life are bound together through our weekly Sunday celebrations where we gather as a neighborhood community.
At St. Margaret of Scotland, we are blessed to be able to "sing and play to the Lord" frequently.
