Ongoing Programs


Centering Prayer
with Greg Johnson &
Herb Kaighan

2nd & 4th Wednesdays
Please come and join us in prayer. No reservation needed. Centering Prayer is a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. It is a movement beyond conversation to communion and union with God. It prepares us for the gift of contemplation. Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer; rather it casts new light & depth of meaning on all types of prayer. Come and pray with us. Cost: donation

Threads of Our Lives: A Quilted Journey    
Wednesday, May 9 ~ Wednesday May 16, 2018
Opening Reception May 9, 7pm with Dr. Thomas Hedberg
Exhibit open daily 9am -10pm

The remarkable quilts in this exhibit are the incredible art of Betsy Caprio Hedberg, a Jungian Therapist, Spiritual Director, a prolific and published spiritual writer. The selection of hand made quilts are loaned to us by her husband Dr. Thomas Hedberg. Not your ordinary quilt show, the quilts on display are paired with Betsy’s original writings on the journey of the soul as told through the language and metaphor of the art of quilt making. The exhibit will begin with an evening reception, May 9, an opportunity to gather with Dr. Thomas Hedberg and the Mary & Joseph Quilters. Light refreshments will be served. As we gather to view the quilts, Dr. Thomas Hedberg will share the insights and wisdom of this incredible woman of faith. Betsy passed away in March 2016, but her grace and her love of using art to explore the spiritual life of the soul continues to inspire and challenge us. This exhibit will be open to view for a full week. Walk through at your own pace or call the Center to request a docent. Cost: Donation
