Lectio Divina Workshop at St. Galls Catholic Community, on Saturday, March 19th 2022, 9AM - 12:30 PM


Lectio Divina is an ancient monastic way of praying the Scriptures.  Come learn how to listen with the ear of your heart and allow the Word of God to speak to you.


Lectio Divina opens us up to discover the interior life and incrementally brings us to a deeper intimacy with God.  Reflection on God’s Word, imprints the Word on one’s heart and slowly changes our attitudes and how we respond to daily life.


The transforming power of Lectio Divina frees us from our falsity and over time we are shaped into the word of God we were created to be!


Coffee and tea will be provided, please bring a food item to share.


To register for the workshop and assist in planning please call Therese at (775) 901-8033.

This event is free of charge

Days of Reflection, Retreats
About Us
Centering Prayer
Prayer Groups

We hold several introductory workshops and days of reflection each year. During Lent we meet at Lake Tahoe for a three-day silent retreat.

This is a group focused on the contemplative dimension of life and Centering Prayer.


We welcome you to community if you have attended an introductory workshop on Centering Prayer or if you are visiting the northern Nevada area and have an established Centering Prayer practice. We hold several introductory workshops each year.

Centering Prayer follows Jesus's teaching (Matthew 6:6): "If you want to pray, enter your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you." Centering Prayer is resting in God.


Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer.

We have several prayer groups that meet weekly in northern Nevada:

  • A group in Carson City on Wednesday mornings

  • Three groups in Reno on Mondays and Thursdays

  • A group in Gardnerville on Tuesday evenings

True Self

The fundamental goodness of human nature, like the mystery of the Trinity, Grace, and the Incarnation, is an essential element of Christian faith.


Our basic core of goodness is our true Self. Its center of gravity is God.


These are Scripture passages that allude to the practice of Centering Prayer.
