This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.
Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer. Rather, it adds depth of meaning to all prayer and facilitates the movement from more active modes of prayer — verbal, mental, or affective prayer — into a receptive prayer of resting in God.
Centering Prayer emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God and as a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Him.
The Centering Prayer Group meets on Tuesdays at 9:00 a.m. in the Rectory at St. Joseph’s. For more information, please call 419-332-2318.
