Madison - Saturday, January 8, 2022 at 10:00 am by Zoom

Contemplative Outreach of Madison will be hosting one of our 2021 Silent Saturday Centering Prayer gatherings on Saturday, January 8, 2022, at 10:00 AM Central Time using Zoom.

Come join us for this communal practice of a method of prayer that has roots all the way back to the Desert Fathers and Mothers of early Christion monasticism. We will have two 20 minute prayer periods with a short 3-minute break between each sit.

To set a contemplative tone for the prayer time, we will enter the silence 2 minutes early at 9:58 so if you want to chat before the prayer time please join the meeting earlier  (we plan to open the site by 9:45 CT).
