For all who would like to step outside the frenzy of daily life for an opportunity to pray and contemplate in an ancient way, here’s your chance. This Lent, the Garaventa Center and campus ministry are teaming to offer Visio Divina in the Chapel of Christ the Teacher. Visio Divina has its roots in monastic tradition, and is a meditative means of entering into an image to see what God might have to say to you in silence. Each encounter will focus on a different image each week from the University’s St.John’s Bible Heritage Edition.
In response to feedback from staff and faculty who would like to participate in the community’s prayer life but prefer not to come back to campus after their work day ends, there will be two Visio Divina sessions each Wednesday in Lent, starting March 19 at 12:45 p.m. (30 minutes) and 7:15 p.m. (40 minutes). Visio Divina requires nothing from you but your quiet presence, and all are welcome. For more information, please contact Karen Eifler (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Beth Barsotti (email@example.com).
