RENEW: Living in the Sacred

RENEW: Living in the Sacred

RENEW’s “Living in the Sacred”

RENEW’s Living in the Sacred Small Faith Sharing Community

Tuesday Mornings from 10:00-11:30 a.m. beginning October 10th

 

Fr. Rolheiser, OMI, describes three stages of discipleship:

  1. Getting your life together

  2. Giving your life away

  3. Giving your death away

Living in the Sacred takes participants on a deep spiritual journey exploring this second stage of discipleship. Having moved through the “getting your life together” stage, participants have made life commitments either in marriage or other relationships, child raising, to sick or elderly parents or other relatives, careers, or communities, Living in the Sacred is about how we stay true to these commitments as disciples of Christ.  We have only a couple of spots remaining in our group, so please contact Scott Brazil ASAP to learn more.

What is Living in the Sacred?

·         Living in the Sacred: Spirituality for Everyday Life is a twelve session process of spiritual and pastoral renewal.

·         Living in the Sacred: Spirituality for Everyday Life is a faith sharing companion to Fr. Ronald Rolheiser’s most recent book, Sacred Fire.

How will Living in the Sacred: Spirituality for Everyday Life help our parishioners? Longing for the Holy enables people to:

·         Deepen their faith.

·         Develop a closer relationship with Christ.

·         Grow in community.

·         Name the essentials of our spirituality and integrate them more into our lives.

 

  If you are interested in being a part of our Tuesday Morning Small Faith Sharing Community, fill out the form below and we will contact you.

Centering Prayer Groups

Centering Prayer Groups

NEW: United in Prayer Event at Risen Savior

Saturday, March 17th, from 1-3 p.m.

united in prayer.png

We are called to move beyond ourselves, beyond our individual groups and local communities, and come together in prayer for the healing of this world.  Risen Savior is one of three Twin Cities locations joining in a worldwide vigil.  Our “United in Prayer” meeting will include:

·       Viewing two video segments provided by the national Contemplative Outreach office.

·       Time for reflection and discussion.

·       Two 20-minute centering prayer sessions.

There is no cost to participate, though a free will offering will be made available to contribute to.  Contact Scott Brazil for more information and/or to R.S.V.P. for the event.

CENTERING PRAYER CONTINUING TRAINING

EVERY OTHER SATURDAY FROM 9:00-11:00 A.M.

BEGINS FEBRUARY 10, 2018

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD A FLYER/SCHEDULE

We are excited to offer an opportunity to share the practice of Centering Prayer with new participants, as well as assist current practitioners with deepening their current practice.  We will be utilizing a DVD-series from Contemplative Outreach that features Fr. Thomas Keating!

The format of the gatherings will include two twenty-minute Centering prayer sessions, the viewing of a 15-20 minutes DVD clip, and in-depth discussion and faith sharing.  Participants can choose to engage in all, or just part, of any or all gatherings.  No registration is required.  Contact Scott Brazil for more information.

 

Wednesday Morning Communal Centering Prayer

Every Wednesday from 9:30-10:00 a.m. in the Chapel

All are invited to join us for a communal experience of Centering Prayer, during which we sit "alone together" for a period of 20 minutes.  Those who have never experienced this form of prayer are encouraged to join us, as we will take time to explain the basics of the method before beginning, as well as answer any questions you may have.  

Centering Prayer is a receptive, deep method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God's presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.

Registration is as simple as filling out the form at the bottom of this webpage, or you can also contact Scott Brazil.

Got Questions?  Try Alpha!

Alpha is a series of sessions that helps participants explore the Christian faith.  Each session looks at a different question around faith from a Catholic context and is designed to create conversation.  A typical gathering will include gathering for a simple meal, viewing an engaging and thought-provoking video, and small group discussion time to reflect and process how the day’s question pertains to your spiritual journey.

 Did you miss our first two sessions?  No worries, as you can still join us for our gathering on October 2nd! We will gather for a simple meal, view an engaging and thought-provoking video that focuses on the question, “Why Did Jesus Die?”, and small group discussion time to reflect on and process how that question pertains to your spiritual journey. 

 Fill out the online form below to R.S.V.P. for the October 2nd event (only if you did not attend one of the previous gatherings).
