This Lent, explore the rich heritage of prayer in the Catholic Church by attending the Lenten Lecture Series on Catholic Prayer. Hosted by Fr. Frank Hoffmann, pastor of St. Matthew Church in Norwalk, this series of lectures will cover various aspects and kinds of prayer. While fasting and almsgiving are commonly practiced during Lent, prayer can be challenging for many of us. We all know the basic idea of prayer is talking to God, but the Catholic Church offers a plethora of ways to pray, and this lecture series aims to educate and inspire attendees to become Students of Prayer.
Some of the topics that will be covered in the series include Distractions in Prayer, Marian Prayer, Praying in the Ignatian Tradition, and Praying with Teresa of Avila. Do not miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding and practice of prayer this Lent. All are welcome!
A one-hour session will be offered Monday evenings at 7 PM beginning on February 12 through March 18. The same program will be offered on Tuesdays at 1 PM beginning February 13 and concluding on March 19. The Monday evening session will take place in the Church; the Tuesday afternoon session will take place in the Great Room of Saint Matthew Church, 216 Scribner Avenue, Norwalk and is open to all. This Lent come back to school and be a Student of Prayer!
