Prayer Groups: Centering, Morning, Power2023-11-03T13:22:17-04:00


The Centering Prayer Group is a small group of individuals that gathers every Thursday at 6:00 pm in the chapel for silent contemplative prayer.

Contemplative prayer is a wordless stillness in the presence of God—an opening of the heart and mind to God. The method of centering prayer involves the silent repetition of a sacred word or phrase.  We sit in silence with this sacred word, and as we become aware of thoughts in our minds, we gently return to the sacred word.  Experience with centering prayer is not required.

Although we meet weekly, regular attendance is not required.  Come regularly or just when you are able.

Morning Prayer at St. Thomas: Join us for Morning Prayer at Saint Thomas!

The Morning Prayer group meets in the chapel every weekday from 7:45 am to 8:05 am. Some participants attend very infrequently, some once a week, some daily.

In a twenty-minute period you will share moments of outward song, inward silence, readings from the psalms and canticles, a short reading from Scripture, some intercessory prayers for yourself or others, the Our Father, and a simple closing prayer.

Start your day from a timeless core – the tradition of Morning Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours. Please join us!

Prayer Power is a group of parishioners dedicated to daily prayer for specific and individual needs of others. This gives shut-ins and busy people an opportunity to volunteer and participate in a ministry from the comfort of home. Prayer Power receives requests for prayer by self-referral, phone, or email. Volunteers commit to prayer for 6 weeks. Requests are held in confidence. All that is required is to set aside a brief time each day to pray. There are no rules regarding how to pray.

Volunteers of the Prayer Power Ministry should have a daily prayer time and faith to believe that God answers prayer. Members must have a spirit of generosity, compassion, and commitment towards those seeking prayers and must respect the confidentiality of prayer requests.

“…this is the boldness we have in God’s presence: that if we ask God for anything that agrees with what he wants, he hears us. If we know he hears us every time we ask him, we know we have what we ask from him.”
1 John 5:14
