Lenten Retreat 2019
St. Juliana Missionary Spirit Team will be hosting a day of "Faith, Fellowship, Prayer and Reflection"Please join us on March 9th 8:30am-1:00pm at St. Juliana Church as Fr. James Wallace, the pastor of St. Juliana Parish, presents "Come and See, Spiritual Lessons from the Life of Christ "
Learn what prayer is and how to pray!
Fr. James Wallace, the pastor of Saint Juliana Parish, will be offering a four-week series on “Prayer and the Spiritual Life.” He will discuss the different styles and methods of prayer, including Lectio Divina, contemplation, devotional prayer like the Rosary and Eucharistic Adoration, centering prayer, and more. The various “schools” of spirituality (Benedictine, Carmelite, Ignatian) will be presented, along with a history of prayer. The goal is not simply to teach about prayer, but to teach how to pray. In each session there will be a demonstration of prayer and a chance to pray, as well as the opportunity to share personal experiences of prayer and ask questions. People of all levels, from beginners to mystics, are welcome!
- Session 1: Tuesday, March 5th
- Session 2: Tuesday, March 12th
- Session 3: Tuesday, March 19th
- Session 4: Tuesday, March 26th
All sessions will last one hour, from 7pm to 8pm at the Saint Juliana Parish Center Chapel, located at 7200 N. Osceola Avenue, Chicago IL 60631. The sessions are independent—if you miss one you can still attend the others—and there is no charge. The only expectation of participants is that they themselves engage in private prayer throughout the week between sessions!We hope you can join and experience a deepening of your prayer and your relationship with God, not to mention a greater sense of peace and fulfillment in your life!
