About zoom:

Lately, there have been concerns in the media reporting privacy and
“zoombombing” on zoom. Sister Celeste is using a paid subscription and enables all
security features that are provided by Zoom, so any disruptions would be minimal if
any.

Ways to Deepen Your Prayer


Lectio Divina – Prayer of Divine Knowing
Wednesday 9:30AM – 10:30AM on ZOOM

Lectio Divina (divine reading) is a way of allowing God’s Word to touch us very
personally. Introduced by St. Gregory of Nyssa (c 330- 395), lectio helps us develop
a closer relationship with God by reflecting prayerfully on His words. The chosen
spiritual text is read four times in total, giving an opportunity to think deeply about
it and respond thoughtfully. 


Ignatius Examen – Seeing God in our Daily Life
Thursday 9:30AM – 10:30AM on Zoom

This is a technique of prayerful reflection on the events of the day in order to
become aware of God’s presence and discern his direction for us. The Examen is an
ancient practice in the Church that can help us see God’s hand at work in our whole
experience. Ignatius of Loyola, who started this 20 minute prayer exercise, thought
the Examen was a gift that came directly from God. It’s a habit of prayer that Jesuits,
and many other Christians, practice daily.


Praying through Sacred Doodling (Zentangle)
Friday 9:30AM – 10:30AM on Zoom

Do you doodle? Have you ever tried praying while you doodle?
All you need for this centering technique is a blank piece of paper , a pen or fine
point marker and your openness to the Holy Spirit. If it’s challenging for you to sit
quietly and pray, zentangle might be an exercise to help you. Drawing repetitive
patterns can help occupy your hands and the active part of your mind, so that God
can speak to you in the quiet of your heart. We will use a scripture passage and
guided meditation to inspire us as we repeat patterns in our doodles.

The Parish Office and Churches are closed to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, the Parish has to stop the production of the bulletin during this time. Mass Intentions have been honored at the private masses by the priests. Thank you for your support and understanding. Gob Bless You.
