In about 1 hour a day, the Lenten Week of Accompanied Prayer will provide you with valuable suggestions for daily prayer, as well as the daily opportunity to discuss, in confidence, your experience of God and prayer with an experienced prayer-guide. 1 week: Feb. 28-Mar. 6th. Register by Feb. 17 by calling the church @ 216-321-2660. There is no cost to participate.
More Info: Silent prayer retreats and meetings with spiritual directors are not something many of us have engaged in. They provide a chance to make a commitment to focused contemplation and then to talk it over with someone who will be interested, nonjudgmental, and encouraging. The chance to disucss your spiritual journey one-on-one with another person is an amazing gift.
You don’t need to be dealing with “issues” – it’s not therapy! — and you don’t need to be making big decisions or new resolutions about your spiritual life. All you need is the desire to explore it a bit further.
Eric Muller-Girard and Robin Craig are graduates of the Ignatian Spirituality Institute at John Carroll University. They developed this prayer retreat as a Lenten observance and a gift to Forest Hill.
