Lenten Prayers 2017
Tuesday Morning Prayer
7:30-8:00am at the Retreat House
Throughout Lent, the Welcoming Prayer will be practiced on Tuesday mornings, 7:30-8:00am. Mary Mrozowski (1925-1993) from Brooklyn, NY developed this way of prayer upon recognizing that people need practices to help them “let go.” The three movements of the prayer, as described by Cynthia Bourgeault are to
1) Focus and sink in,
2) Welcome and
3) Let go.
