Opportunities for Contemplative Prayer: A Guided Meditation
The Angela Merici Center for Spirituality is offering a monthly guided meditation via its Facebook page: www.facebook.com/amcspirituality, or on its website, www.amcspirituality.org, on the Programs page. This is the first offering of a new series, Opportunities for Contemplative Prayer, that will be posted on the fourth Monday of the month. It is our hope and prayer that you will receive what you need and desire from these opportunities.
Our in-person Taizé services have been temporarily suspended due to the Coronavirus. Please enjoy these virtual Taizé prayer services we have created for you.
Known for its beauty, peace and quiet power, Taize Prayer is practiced throughout the world. Using chants, simple songs, inspirational readings, Scripture, silence and prayer, it offers an opportunity of ever-deepening rest in God’s presence. Come and find rest for your soul. All are welcome.
Sabbath-keeping is an ancient tradition of resting from your labor so that you might remember the gifts of God and reconnect with the Ground of your being. The theme for this year is Love. Each month we will reflect upon a different aspect of love and how we might more fully live into it.

Discernment: Discovering God’s Will in Everyday Life
What is God’s will? How do I know if a certain decision is God’s will? Is there a difference between my heart’s desire and God’s will? The basis of this workshop is that God is always speaking to us and that discernment is a holistic spiritual practice that helps us
to understand what God is trying to say. Topics will include: What is discernment, distinguishing spirits of truth and falsehood, using our own lives and other tools for discernment, knowing when to wait and when to act.
