About The Class

The pandemic forced us to stop and be present in our own homes.  For some, they became more reflective.  As the pandemic slows down, life moves to a more frantic pace.  We wonder how to keep a prayer filled life.

Spiritual Directors Barbara Leonard and Karen Treat invite you to a 2-part retreat (Saturday morning, and the following 3 Thursday evenings via Zoom) on living a life in prayer and the gifts given with our relational God.

The retreat will include experiential opportunities as well as time to learn from spiritual guides such as Father James Martin SJ, Joyce Rupp OSM, and Father Thomas Keating OCSO.
