Month of Grace + Prayer: A Retreat in Everyday Life

Go on retreat while staying at home. Explore different ways of praying, speak privately with an experienced spiritual companion and become more aware of God’s presence in your life. A Month of Grace + Prayer (formerly known as Month of Guided Prayer) will begin with a 90 minute group gathering (in person or virtually) of all participants on Sunday, September 11. Throughout the month each participant will be invited to pray privately each day and then meet confidentially with an experienced spiritual companion for one hour each week. In person meetings with spiritual companions take place on Tuesday mornings, afternoons or evenings, and virtual meetings are scheduled on any day and time mutually convenient with the participant and companion. All will gather again in celebration on Sunday, October 9. This is an individually directed retreat tailored to your own deep desires. Committed couples also have the option to participate as a couple. Everyone is welcome, no exceptions.
