Centering Prayer

Every Tuesday, 7:10-7:55 a.m.

Centering PrayerPlease note: a break is taken at 7:30 a.m. for those who wish to join the Norbertine Community for Morning Prayer or simply need to leave.

Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer which helps us open our minds and hearts to God beyond thoughts, words, and emotions. It is a way of consenting to God’s presence and action within.

While Centering Prayer does not replace other kinds of prayer, it can cast a new light and depth of meaning on them. Join others and begin your day by spending time with God in the silence.

Art as a Tool for Healing

Artists for the Humanities

Third Thursday of Every Month, 1-4 p.m.

For years, veterans have participated in Return and Recovery sessions at the Norbertine Center for Spirituality in which expressive art has helped them share powerful personal stories with the support of other veterans and family members. This program expands the Return and Recovery Program for Military Veterans to include anyone experiencing stressful situations such as caring for others or dealing with the loss of a loved one.

In expressive art, the focus is not on what is created; the focus is on the process of creating art and what it means to the person who produces it. Timothy Mayer, resident artist and executive director of Artists for the Humanities, is offering this expressive art class for adults.

No art experience is necessary. All art materials are provided.

  • Facilitator: Timothy Mayer
  • Free will offering (suggested donation $5)
  • Registration appreciated
