Centering Prayer is a method designed to facilitate the development of Contemplative Prayer by preparing ourselves to receive this gift. We may think of prayer as thoughts or feelings expressed in words, this is only one expression. In the Christian tradition Contemplative Prayer is considered to be the pure gift of God. It is the opening of mind and heart – our whole being – to God, beyond thoughts, words, and emotions. Its focus is the deepening of our relationship with the living Christ. Its fruits build communities of faith and bond the members together in mutual friendship and love. Centering Prayer meets every 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at 5:30 pm.

Finding time to develop your spiritual life while taking care of your family can be difficult—even seem impossible. “MOMS” is here to help!

The Order of the Daughters of the King
The Daughters of the King is a national religious order for laywomen of the Episcopal Church. Our purpose is to bring women and girls to a knowledge and love of our Lord Jesus Christ, and when possible, to membership in His Church. Each member of the DOK pledges herself to a lifelong program of prayer, service, and personal evangelism, dedicated to the extension of Christ's kingdom and strengthening the spiritual life of her parish. The Daughters undertake two vows:
Daughters are ordinary human beings enabled by God's grace to do His work. Our local St. Macrina Chapter meets the third Saturday of each month at 10:30am in members homes. Please contact the church office for the location of the upcoming meeting.
