You are warmly invited to join us for a morning of Centering Prayer, devotional songs and silence with fellow centering prayer practitioners. 

This month we welcome Br. Stefan, who will be joining us from the Community of Peace in Louisa, VA.
   Br. Stefan will lead us in some sung prayer (chants/songs), offering a significant time of silence and space for reflection and conversation around a sacred text.  We look forward, too, to his sharing about life in the Community of Peace.

We hope you can join us for all or part of the morning!
If you are able, please bring a simple refreshment to share.

however, we do incur costs, so contributions toward our programming
