Thursday evenings (6:45-8:20 pm) – September 14, 21 and 28; October 5, 12, and 19

Monastery Guesthouse Common Room

Leader: Br. Nicholas Bartoli, SSJE

Over the course of six weeks, we will be reading and discussing David Frenette’s The Path of Centering Prayer: Deepening Your Experience of God.  Together we will learn how to deepen our centering prayer practice by refocusing on the nature of contemplation.  We will also explore contemplative attitudes, both as part of the practice of contemplation, and as the fruit it bears within our everyday lives.  Please note that you must be able to commit to at least five Thursday evenings in order to join the group. The book is available from Amazon here:  For our first meeting, please have read chapters 1-3.

Limited to 10 participants with ability to commit to at least five of the six sessions.

To join this prayer group please contact the Guesthouse Manager by e-mail at or by telephone at (617) 876-3037 extension 10. The guesthouse office hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00AM to 5:00PM.
