A Place to Pray Everyday
The Cathedral of St. Paul offers a variety of opportunities for prayer and connection every weekday, including Morning Prayer and varies prayer groups throughout the week. Whether you are joining us from the Episcopal tradition, a different tradition, or no tradition, we invite you to make the ancient rhythms of the church part of your spiritual practice.
Morning Prayer in the Chapel
Join us for Morning Prayer each weekday in the chapel at 8:00 A.M. (enter from the 7th Street doors and make an immediate left after once inside) This brief service is rooted in the monastic tradition and is the perfect way to begin your day. We recite psalms, read Scripture, and offer ancient prayers. There are silences and time for private intercessions. Everyone is welcome to join us.
The Cathedral offers a group contemplative practice of Lectio Divina. As opposed to Bible study, Lectio Divina (Latin for “Divine Reading”) is a structured practice of reading and reflecting on Scripture as a form of prayer. We read the text listening for God’s word to us in our current life situation. The group meets on Monday evenings at 7:00 P.M. in the Diocesan House Chapel. You are welcome to join at any time.
Centering Prayer at the Cathedral
Does your busy mind cause you anxiety? Do you desire a deeper relationship with God? If so, join us for the practice and discipline of Centering Prayer Meditation. This well-recognized method of prayer is used to still your mind so that you can truly listen and be present in the moment. We meet every Thursday from 7:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M. in the Cathedral. You are welcome to join us at any time.
