Monastery Lecture: The Practice of Contemplative Prayer
November 8, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm$20
You are invited to attend a lecture presented by Fr. Martin Laird, O.S.A. on the Practice of Contemplative Prayer. This lecture is the first of a series of Monastery Lectures on Contemplation. Fr. Laird teaches the ancient Christian spiritual practice of contemplation – clearing away distractions to become aware of silent union with God.
Father Martin Laird is a member of the Order of St. Augustine and Professor of Early Christian Studies at Villanova University. His scholarship is on the Church Fathers, especially Evagrius Ponticus. He has extensive training in contemplative disciplines, gives retreats, and has lectured extensively on contemplative prayer throughout the United States, Great Britain, and Ireland.
This is a small gathering with limited seating.
