    Welcoming Prayer

    The Welcoming Prayer is a practice designed to help us respond, instead of react, when we find our emotional programs triggered.

Gratitude Image

WITH DEEP GRATITUDE

                        
       
   

The Center for Contemplative Living is thriving thanks to you, our donors, and all those we serve through the many programs and prayer opportunities we are able to offer. Our donors provide the foundation for maintaining our Center and for the staff who manage our facilities and programs.

 

In 2015 our board recommended a three-year plan to sustain our community into the future in order that all of our paid staff may live a contemplative life and provide contemplative service. We hired Christina Oleske as our Assistant Coordinator last year and Lori Banks as our Assistant Administrator this year and have now fully implement the board-recommended salary levels. We are excited to welcome Carol Gleason as our new Coordinator following the retirement of Carole Koski. We are so grateful for the five years of dedicated service Carole provided and look forward to seeing what the Spirit has in store for her next. You can still expect to see her around the Center volunteering in a new way.

 

You can see that our web site is filled with a breadth of classes, workshops, retreats, days of prayer and prayer groups to meet the needs of newcomers and those seeking renewal and rejuvenation. You may have also noticed new paving, handicapped access, TVs, cushions in the chapel, those little things that make our space more welcoming.

 

Our only purpose in being is to provide a place, a Sanctuary, for the Spirit to work in the lives of all who enter. Fr. Thomas calls our Center the “jewel” of Contemplative Outreach. We couldn’t do it without your support and prayers. Our hearts are full of deep gratitude and love as we hold each of you and all those we serve in prayer. Thank you.
