UPDATE: Quiet Mornings WILL NOT BE HELD on July 9. We apologize for this schedule change and hope you will join us for another session.

 

Quiet Mornings sessions are currently being held in-person on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. (It is also held virtually on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday and 4th Saturday. Every virtual session is held from 10:30 am to 12:00 noon.) Please email Joanne at jmcahooneph3@gmail.com for the Zoom sessions invitation.

Quiet mornings provide an opportunity for quiet – for reflection, prayer, listening, presence – in common with others. Perhaps you’d like to carve out time, but could use the support of a structure that is also flexible? Most of us could! And there is encouragement and strength in coming together in this way. You are welcome whenever matches your schedule/desire/need.

Each gathering is bracketed by an opening and closing prayer. The quiet hour at its heart is not scripted or guided. Each one enters the quiet and utilizes or follows it as she/he desires to do so. Some opt to journal, read, walk; to engage in meditation; imaginative prayer or centering prayer; art or collage; or physical movement. The commitment to enter the quiet with some regularity as an ongoing practice is the point. By doing so in companionship with others, we support each other’s journey just by willingly being present in God’s presence together, and hoping good for each other. In our closing prayer, we pray a blessing for each other.
Please feel welcome! Guided by Joanne Cahoon.

Joanne Cahoon, D.Min. – spiritual director, retreat leader, coach – facilitates the Quiet Mornings. Please email Joanne at jmcahooneph3@gmail.com for the Zoom invitation.
