Peace and Quiet
Meditatio, Tuesdays 7pm in the Chapel
Meditatio Events: Meditatio is back at St. Mark’s for a limited time. We will continue with the tradition of following John Main’s contemplative process, adding our own prayers and petitions as needed. We will meditate for 20 minutes using the mantra Maranatha. Meditatio will take place on the following Tuesday evenings: June 27, July 11 & 25, August 8 & 22. The prayer session starts at 7:00 PM in the chapel of St. Mark’s church (865 Lakeshore Drive in Dorval). A few Meditative Walks are also planned for this summer, details will follow. For more information, please contact Stacey or the church office.
Are you looking for some peace and quiet? For many of us modern life affords little silence or time for reflection. Please join us for contemplative prayer and silent meditation in our beautiful original chapel (pictured below). Prayer, a short reading, and silent meditation are the components of this peaceful service that is led by a lay member of our community. Not familiar with meditation? Worried about being able to do it correctly? Please do not worry! There is no wrong or right way to meditate. The service includes about 20 minutes of silent meditation during which you can reflect on the reading that was shared, focus on your breathing, repeat a simple prayer or mantra in your mind, or notice your thoughts without judging them.
In order to preserve the quiet and peaceful atmosphere, please arrive a few minutes before 7pm so that we can joyfully greet one another before our 7pm start.
