Beaverton church to host centering prayer workshop
St. Cecilia Catholic Church in Beaverton will host a centering prayer introductory workshop from noon to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb, 10, in the Parish Center.
"Centering Prayer is a method designed to facilitate the development of contemplative prayer by preparing our faculties to receive this gift," reads a statement from St. Cecilia sent to the Times. "It is an attempt to present the teaching of earlier times in an updated form. It is a receptive method of silent prayer and does not replace other types of prayer, but adds depth and meaning to all prayers."
