- Christian Contemplative Experience -


We are a Christian Contemplative Prayer group focused on Welcoming Prayer, Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina. Please join us on the First and Third Thursdays in the Holy Family Retreat Center Anam Cara Room at 7:00 PM to share in these beautiful forms of Christian Contemplative prayer.  Our evenings include Welcoming Prayer, Video Teaching and Dialogue, Lectio Divina and Centering Prayer.  Please contact Mike Smoolca by email at or by calling 860-798-8992 for more information and to be added to our email list.

We welcome guests and beginners to join and deepen their prayer practice with us.  For newcomers, an orientation starting at 6:30 PM on the nights we meet can be arranged in advance by contacting Mike Smoolca. In addition to the orientation, we provide beginners with initial material on Welcoming Prayer, Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina and other resources. A free-will offering is accepted. To access the Anam Cara room enter through entrance #5, the Monastery elevator, and go to the second floor, turn right and proceed to the end of the hall.
