“The living tradition of prayer, each Church proposes to its faithful, according to its historic, social, and cultural context, a language for prayer: words, melodies, gestures, iconography.... [I]t is for pastors and catechists to explain their meaning, always in relation to Jesus Christ.”
-- Catechism of the Catholic Church, #2663.
Our four-part Lenten series is designed for any adult or young adult who wants to expand or enrich their appreciation for different types and forms of praying. Each week in the series we will explain or experience three types of prayer, some traditional and some more contemporary. Some of these prayer forms may be familiar, others may not.
This is an excellent opportunity for individuals, couples and small groups to enrich their personal or group prayer and expand their appreciation for the Church's rich tradition of personal and communal prayer.
