A taste of Taizé
In the monastery at Taizé, short mantra-like songs create a relaxing style of prayer. As the words are repeated, their reality gradually penetrates our whole being. Singing becomes a way of listening to God. The simplicity and repetition allow us to wait attentively on God. This is a prayer of watching, awakening and listening. It is very much in the spirit of the Advent Scriptures. Come and relax in this beautiful prayer at OLR on Tuesday 6th Dec at 7.00pm.
A facilitated morning with prayer, reflection & faith sharing
The Catholic experience can be limited to liturgy, sacraments and responding to Church teaching. As valuable as these elements of our faith are, A Morning’s Prayer is about locating something that sits underneath all that: the profound engagement with God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – who loves us and desires to walk with us in our lives as they are. This morning will be facilitated with a time of input, prayer, reflection and faith sharing, and aims to provide a prayerful respite from the busyness of life.

Date: Saturday, 26 November 2022
Time: 9:00am-12:00pm at Santa Teresa Spirituality Centre. 267 Wellington Street Ormiston

Going Deeper podcast
There’s so much to know about the Catholic faith that it’s easy to get caught up in catechising ourselves while we forget about what it means to implement the faith in our daily lives. If you’re interested in learning more, or just getting some perspective on faith, tune in to the weekly episodes!
Listen to last week’s Going Deeper Podcast on the Creation of Soul
