9 a.m.–Noon 

Church and Livestream



In our time together, Jim will help us to understand how prayerfully reflecting on the events of Christ’s life can help us to become more aware of and responsive to God’s presence in the joys and sorrows of our daily lives. The event will include brief periods of shared silent prayer and an opportunity to discuss the themes presented. There is no need to register in advance.


jim finleyJames Finley is a former Trappist monk who studied closely with Thomas Merton. He is the author of Thomas Merton's Palace of Nowhere. He is a contemplative practitioner and a renowned psychologist in Santa Monica, CA. He teaches for the Living School of Action and Contemplation as a core faculty member alongside Richard Rohr and Cynthia Bourgeault.


James Finley reminds us, “The contemplative way is like a monastery without walls, a gathering place for people who are searching for something more--something more meaningful, intimate, and richly present to the gift and miracle of their own life.” Our dear friend and gift to St. Monica, James Finley, help us on this journey of life and love.


“Meditation is a way of slowing down to descend into the depths of yourself in the present moment, where God lies waiting to grant you a deep experience of your eternal oneness with God.” – James Finley
“If we are absolutely grounded in the absolute love of God that protects us from nothing even as it sustains us in all things, then we can face all things with courage and tenderness and touch the hurting places in others and in ourselves with love.” – James Finley
