The seed of my growth into Centering Prayer started with the 1988 birth of my son that led me to begin the return to my faith. In 1991, I began to practice Centering Prayer as I went with great interest to St. Benedict’s school where they began offering daily Christian Centering Prayer sessions and retreats with facilitator Sr. Jean Lavin, O.S.B.
In 2006 I began going to prayer at the House of Prayer in Erie, Pennsylvania and to retreats sponsored by the Erie branch of Contemplative Outreach. There I met Fr. Keating and was the recipient of a personal interview with him that I will always cherish.
During my service through retreats and workshops, I look forward to learning more about Centering Prayer with a focus on how to advance in our collective and individual transformation in Christ.
I am a parishioner at St Patrick’s Catholic Church in Mt Dora, FL. Through the grace of God, I am currently retired from work in distribution at the Erie-Times Newspaper.
I look forward to serving as a co-coordinator for Contemplative Outreach of Central Florida for the next three years and to this wonder-filled opportunity. Peace and blessings to us all!
