Center for Prayer & Spirituality
The Center's mission is to encourage and support an interest in Christian spirituality and integrate mind, body, and spirit by offering contemplative practices, classes, lectures, workshops and direction.
We hope to foster connection, understanding and compassion for self, others and the mystery that beautifully and expansively holds us all.
