Learning to Pray during Lent ~ A Lenten Journey with the Los Angeles Retreat Center Community
Weekly on Thursdays at 7:30 pm PST via Zoom Beginning on February 23 and culminating on March 30, 2023
Please join us this Lent for a series of prayer learning experiences designed and hosted by the Los Angeles Retreat Center Community. The series will be offered online and will include an introduction to popular prayer forms to be encountered during the Lenten spiritual journey.
These will include: a short history and introduction of the prayer forms and specific sessions on Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina, Visio Divina, and the Labyrinth – or prayer-in-motion. In addition, each retreat center will have its retreat leaders guide each session, providing a Lenten flavor and the opportunity to journey with the retreat leaders in the prayerful discussion.
The sessions will be one-hour in length, held weekly on Thursday at 7:30 pm. You can register here and attend any or all of the sessions.
The program is offered without a fee, but we welcome free will donations to offset the center’s costs to create and present the program.

Lenten Reflections: Part Three ~ Lectio Divina
Thursday March 9, 2023 7:30-8:30 pm
This presentation will examine the tradition of Lectio Divina. Lectio Divina means Sacred Reading of God’s Word. I will offer several passages from the Bible that you may consider for future references. Tonight, we will be looking at the Upper Room Experience, where Jesus called his disciples together to celebrate the Last Supper. We will read this text three times and meditated upon it. Questions will be provided for shared reflections. Then consider how this impacts our life and does it move us to some activity that will help build up the Kingdom of God. Hosted by Fr. Charlie Smiech, OFM
