Taizé Prayer

Experience Taizé With Us

Led by Sr. M. Anncarla Costello and Sr. Cristina Marie Buczkowski on the 3rd Wednesdays of each month.

Taizé prayer is a beautiful prayer experience including the use of candles, simple chants, scripture and periods of silence and icons. There is no preaching. The prayers consist of “short chants, repeated again and again.” It is a relaxing time to spend with God in quiet and peaceful prayer.

The Taizé prayer experience is very powerful!

Dec 13 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Centering Prayer Group @ Sisters of Notre Dame

Join this monthly prayer group for young men and women to deepen their prayer lives over the course of 7 months.

Centering Prayer is an ancient method of Christian prayer in updated form.  It reduces the obstacles to union with God caused by the hyperactivity of our minds and our lives. This method is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.  It is a response to Jesus’ own directive on prayer: “When you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will repay you” (Matthew 6:6).  This method of prayer is a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Him, i.e., the gift of contemplation.

Materials included in the program:

  • Book: Open Mind, Open Heart by Thomas Keating, OCSO.  (20th Anniversary Edition)
  • Brochure on Centering Prayer
  • Centering prayer app information

Sister Therese Dugan, our presenter, is a Sister of Notre Dame of Chardon, Ohio.  Sister has a PhD in Education and an M.A. in Theology with a major field in Scripture. Besides assignments in Education, she taught Scripture in Tanzania, East Africa, and was an Associate Professor of Sacred Scripture at St. Mary Seminary in Wickliffe, Ohio. Having returned from parish ministry at Michael Parish in Clearwater, Florida, she is currently a commissioned presenter for Contemplative Outreach in the United States.

Sister Kelley Rush, our co-facilitator, is a Sister of Notre Dame of Chardon, Ohio.  Entering the Sisters in 2009, she is a respected Retreat and Spiritual Director and serves her congregation as Vocation Director.
