MEETING CHRIST IN PRAYER is an interactive eight-week guided prayer experience for small groups. Based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, it introduces participants to various ways of praying and provides an opportunity to support one another through faith sharing.

Who can participate? 
The program is designed to serve many groups of people:
• Those with little experience in praying
• Those who are hungry for a deeper spiritual life
• Those who are seeking spiritual renewal
• Those looking to form regular prayer habits or new ways of praying
• Those who desire the support of a community of faith
• Those who want to be more aware of God’s presence in daily life

What does it offer?
MEETING CHRIST IN PRAYER combines 8 weekly group meetings with daily prayer and reflection exercises that are completed individually between each gathering. Weekly meetings are 90 minutes in length and include group prayer, guided meditation, small group faith sharing, and an orientation for the following week’s prayer or prayer techniques. The cost of the program is a sliding scale from $30-$50 and covers all materials. Scholarships are available.

Benefit Caritas Concert
Time: Wednesday, March 18 at 6:30 pm
Location: Wallace Hall

Sara Murphy, mezzo-soprano and Michael Sheetz, piano
In Recital

Featuring Mahler’s Rückert Lieder and music of Brahms, Lili Boulanger and Edward Elgar.

100% of proceeds benefit LifeWay Network, a New York Metro area organization that joins in the global movement against human trafficking by providing safe housing for women who have been trafficked and offering education about trafficking to the general public.

Held in Wallace Hall, Caritas Concerts have the appeal of the less formal salon concerts of the 19th century. The evenings begin and end with wine, hors d’oeuvres, and a chance to mingle with the performers, and intimate seating places the audience in close proximity to the music. As the name suggests, Caritas Concerts are benefits, with all proceeds directed toward charities that address social justice concerns.

All tickets for Caritas Concerts: $50
