Centering Prayer Group
This group practices Centering Prayer as developed and taught by Father Thomas Keating. Its goal is to live the contemplative dimension of the Gospel in daily life. Introductory training sessions are offered to the parish throughout the year. The meetings offer support, time for centering prayer, video lessons, discussion and Scriptural meditation. This is a non- denominational group that welcomes all interested in growing in contemplative spirituality. This group meets Mondays at 7pm or Tuesdays at 10am. For more information contact Dennis Wiegal at 503-581-1337.
Intercessory Prayer Group
Our goal is to pray together for the needs of anyone who asks. We use centering prayer when we gather and pray individually for the shared needs for the two weeks between meetings. All requests are held in strict confidence. We meet the 1st & 3rd Wednesday evenings of the month. To request prayer or to join us in prayer please call Carol Hoagland at 503-371-8236.
El Shaddai – Charismatic Prayer Group
El Shaddai is a combination of two Hebrew words: “El” which means God, and “Shaddai” which means Almighty; thus El Shaddai is translated as “God Almighty” (Genesis 17:1; 35:11, NIV). The El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI is a Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement. It envisions to bring about a revival of the true Christian spirit in the Catholic faith. It aims to raise up a community of faith-filled-generous believers of the Lord Jesus Christ as recorded in Acts 2:42-47. We meet the 4th Saturday of each month starting at 7pm. For more information please call Maryann G. Gaviola at 503-949-9487 or Yvette Gayomali 503-515-4383.
