Daily Conversation with God

“Prayer is just talking with someone who’s already talking to you.” – Robert Farrar Capon

The cornerstone of our faith is prayer — a daily conversation with God. Prayer can take on myriad forms, whether it’s silent meditation, reading through scripture, or any other activity performed with intention and mindfulness.

Contemplative Prayer at St. Paul’s

Morning Prayer is said each weekday morning at 9 a.m. in the Chapel, following the Morning Prayer service in the Book of Common Prayer.

Our Cloister Night series takes place in Lent and Advent, meeting Tuesdays, 6:30-8:30 p.m., from March 12–April 9, 2019 (Lent). This program provides intentional devotion that resembles the deep spiritual experiences of living in a monastery. The evening consists of Eucharist, a simple supper, shared devotion, and prayerful silence. To sign up, email Bob Steventon.

Quiet Days offer a time to be still and rest in God before the start of two busy, important seasons, Advent and Lent. Stay tuned for more details about our Lenten Quiet Day, March 9, 2019.

Praying with the Songs of Taizé is a communal contemplative experience. Gathered in the presence of Christ, we sing short songs repeatedly, allowing the mystery of God to become tangible through the beauty of simplicity. You’re invited to join us for silence, scripture reading, prayer, and singing — Tuesday, Apr. 16, 2019, 7:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary.

During the program year (Labor Day through Memorial Day), the Contemplative Prayer group meets each week at 4:30 in the Johnston Room before 5 p.m. Sunday services.
