Upcoming Events

Vespers

Vespers is an opportunity to pause for a mid-week retreat to nurture your spirituality with other young adults from our community.  We share prayer, scripture reading & discussion of topics relevant to our lives as young Catholics.  Every week we have a different theme centered around tops that are important and relevant to our lives as young Catholics. We always welcome new young adults interested in learning more!  We hope you will join us Tuesday evenings promptly at 7:30 pm in the Spirituality Center for spiritual refreshment and fellowship. Volunteers are always needed to help with set-up and clean-up. Let a team member know when you arrive of your desire to help.

 

1/17/17: Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?: Catholic Edition

Let's dive into our old religion books and play against each other in a zany game show to see who would pass our 5th grade religion class.

 

1/24/17: Going Our Way: A Guided St. Monica Church Tour with Monsignor Torgerson

If you've ever been inside St. Monica's church, you know it's beautiful. But have you really taken the time to admire her beautiful artwork, architecture, and unique history? Join us Tuesday night *IN THE CHURCH* as Monsignor Torgerson takes us on a behind the scenes tour and answers any questions we may have about our treasure we call St. Monica's.

 

 1/31/17: Christian Meditation

"When you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you" (Matthew 6:6)

We will explore stillness, silence, and the tradition of Christian meditation and contemplative prayer. Through the writings of Teresa of Avila, Thomas Merton, and Thomas Keating we will look at the origins, theology, and method of these forms of prayer. The evening will conclude with a guided meditation.
