Jesus, Can We Talk?
Speaker: Dr. Kate De Vries Wednesday, February 8 from 9:15 to 11:15 am COR Center Suggested Donation: $8
Prayer is a wonderful tool through which we can come to know Jesus in a deeper and more personal way. Yet, few Catholics would consider themselves great pray-ers. Let's spend time looking at various expressions of prayer (verbal and non-verbal, formal and informal, etc.) and ways prayer is helpful in our lives. Then, let’s draw upon our own experiences and those of gifted others to compile some “prayer tips” for encountering Christ in more meaningful ways.
