Sophie's Well to host Centering Prayer Retreat in the spirit of Sophie

A Centering Prayer Retreat for our Sacred Heart Community will run from the afternoon of March 31 until around noon on April 3. The retreat is geared toward those who are already practicing this prayer form as well as those who wish to be introduced to Centering Prayer.

The retreat will be comprised of instruction, sharing, and the practice of Centering Prayer. There will be longer periods for those who wish, or shorter periods for beginners with more instruction and Q & A available. There will also be times for personal quiet time and reflection.

The retreart will be led by Kathy McGrath, RSCJ, and Mary Pat White, RSCJ, from Sophie’s Well as well as feature talks by Suzanne Cooke, RSCJ, Head of the Conference of Sacred Heart Education, on the Interior Spirit of Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat.
