Take Some Time for Yourself.
During Lent, there will be an experience of Guided Reflective Prayer in Loreto Convent, Bray.
Starting on the week of Monday March 11th, it is a meeting on a 1:1 basis with a trained prayer guide for half an hour once a week at a time that suits you.
It is an opportunity for you to take time out of a busy day and allow God to speak to your heart and listen to him at a deeper level.
This time of quiet reflection is based on Scripture and through it we come to know Jesus better. It is closely related to daily living and no previous experience is necessary.
I encourage you to avail of this opportunity. More information and booking forms are available in the porches of our Church.
What is Guided Prayer?
This is a retreat with a difference- sometimes called a ‘Retreat in Daily Life’, or a ‘Busy Persons Retreat’, as you don’t have to go away to a quiet beautiful place to find God. It is a way of making a retreat in the midst of daily living, as by taking some quiet time each day on your own you are enabled to find God in your everyday life, in all its ups and downs.
You are allocated a personal prayer guide and have an initial short meeting with them on an allocated date.
You meet with them for 30 minutes each day from Monday to Friday on a one to one basis at at time and location that is convenient to you both.
Who are the Prayer Guides?
The guides are lay men and women, religious sisters, brothers and priests who’s are trained and qualified in spiritual guidance and experienced at helping people in their prayer life.
