Everyday Prayer

Barbar5 DiTommaso and Erika Choi are going to be offering this class through the Consultation Center during the upcoming Lenten season.  We would like to get the word out beyond as broadly as possible.  Please feel free to circulate to others in your parish communities.  Thanks!

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you" (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)  You have probably heard that line of scripture before and thought:  What???  How can I possibly pray at all times?  I don't even know if I'm praying correctly.  For those who pray and those who struggle to pray, this series will explore experiencing God through a variety of everyday forms of prayer.  These will include traditional and contemporary prayers, centering prayer, meditating on scripture, other forms of mediation and prayer and suffering.

 When:  Monday 6:30 to 8:30, March 11, 18, 25 and April 1 and 8

Location:  Consultation Center, 790 Lancaster Street, Albany

Class fee:  $50
