Worship / Prayer » Contemplative Prayer

A Christian Meditation prayer group at Saint Celestine Church meet weekly throughout the year, every Wednesday from 6:15 to 7 pm in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel of the Church. Newcomers are always welcome.

Meditation, also known as Contemplative Prayer, is prayer of silence and listening. In Contemplative Prayer we seek God in silence and stillness beyond words and thoughts. Father John Main (1926-1982), a Benedictine monk rediscovered this ancient form of prayer. Today there are over 800 Christian Meditation groups worldwide.

If you would like more information call Patty Matzke at 708-452-4609.
