This group meets every Monday morning from 10:00-11:25 a.m. in the Ministry Center. Some members attend the 11:30 Mass afterwards which is held in the same building. We have been meeting since September, 2007. We began studying the writings of Thomas Merton using the Bridges to Contemplative Living series. When we completed this series, we moved on to two different books entitled Spiritual Classics - Selected Readings on the Twelve Spiritual Disciplines and Devotional Classics - Selected Readings for Individuals and Groups. Currently we are in the process of finishing up Longing for the Holy - Spirituality for Everyday Life, which is based on selected insights of Ronald Rolheiser.
Occasionally we watch movies or webcasts which members of our group may suggest. Some of us have also have gone to Caldwell College which runs programs throughout the year and also to the Loyola Retreat Center for a one-woman play on the life of Dorothy Day.
Our group (which currently consists of eleven people) is contemplative in nature and accepting of each others’ insights and reflections. For the early part of 2017, we will be using the following two study guides:
