ALBANY — St. Mary Parish in Albany is hosting a centering prayer workshop May 20 for parishioners or anyone interested in learning about the method.

Centering Prayer is a method of prayer revived from ancient teachings in the Catholic Christian contemplative heritage that emphasizes prayer as listening to God in silence. 

"By taking time to “rest in God” each day, we prepare to receive the gift of God's presence," wrote organizers.

The workshop will be held May 20th 9:30-3 PM at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Albany, Oregon . Six follow-up sessions will be offered.  For more information or to register, contact Jenny Brausch at 541-971-1297 or [email protected]. Fee $35, scholarships available.
