Upcoming Study Opportunities
Coming in September 2021:
Do you find it easy to pray? Do you hear God’s voice in your daily life and know how to respond? For most of us the answer is no, and we struggle to find even a few minutes every day to pray.
The good news is that we can overcome these difficulties.
Beginning in mid-September, small groups meeting in-person and online will explore and experience the rich tradition of Catholic prayer through the Ascension Press study, “Oremus: A Guide to Catholic Prayer,” by Fr. Mark Toups.
Spanning eight weeks, Oremus (Latin for “let us pray”) teaches the essentials of an effective and fruitful prayer life and guides participants through the simple yet profound steps of Catholic prayer. Following Church Tradition and the wisdom of the Saints, we will learn to talk to God and hear his voice in Scripture, in the heart, and in ordinary moments. We will become more aware of God’s presence, will learn to overcome distractions and dryness, and will recognize desolation and consolation as normal prayer experiences. And as we grow closer to God, we will also grow in our relationship with those around us.
