Reading Group

Join Canon Judy Atherton and The Very Reverend Tyler Doherty for a fun hour of discussion and theological reflection using short fiction as our launching pad.  We'll discuss a piece of fiction each week and reflect theologically on how story can illuminate aspects of our relationship with God, each other, and creation.

Join Fr. Tyler for a weekly time of contemplative prayer in the tradition of Fr. John Main, OSB and the Desert Tradition. Newcomers and beginners are welcome, and instruction in the way of silent prayer is given at each session.
