Find intimacy with God in prayer.  Though prayer is one of the 
essentials of a thriving faith, we can sometimes feel as if we are 
talking to ourselves, or worse, talking to no one at all.  How can 
something so vital to our faith be so elusive? Join one of the Prayer
Study groups to learn more about the mystery of PRAYER. This 

6 week series will show you simple steps for making prayer
an effort of love and intimacy with God.  Classes are offered
every day of the week.  To sign up call the parish office.
