Lord, Teach Me to Pray


Lord, Teach Me To Pray is a prayer series based on Ignatian Spirituality. The Part 1 sessions, “Praying Christian Virtues”, help deepen your prayer life, and discover what to do for obstacles in prayer. It also introduces the different methods of Ignatian prayer, meditation, contemplation and Consciousness Examen. A small group will meet with trained facilitators for 1 - 2 hours once a week for 12 weeks to pray and faith share. The Part 1 Series for men begins on January 25th at 7:30PM at the Parish House. To register contact Brian Dufrene at 985-414-1642 or John Wheelock at 504-214-5011.
