“Prayer itself . . . is the first means by which we come to know the Lord’s will for our lives.”
- Pope Benedict the XVI
Meeting Christ in Prayer—a unique eight-week, guided-prayer experience for small groups—is modeled after the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. This prayer program teaches and reinforces specific prayer practices such as Lectio Divina, imaginative prayer, meditation, the Examen, and more. No prior experience with prayer groups is needed, just a desire to renew one’s faith, enrich one’s prayer life, or become more aware of God’s presence in everyday life. Through Meeting Christ in Prayer, prayer group participants will meet Christ in a new, prayerful way while developing a profound sense of purpose in their own lives.
This new prayer program is perfect for:
RCIA • Pastoral Council • Parish Staff • Adult Faith Formation team • Lenten Prayer Groups
Everything needed for the program is included in one boxed kit:

Easy-to-use downloads for everything you need to make Meeting Christ in Prayer a success at your parish!
