Day of Reflection:  “Growing into God through Different Prayer Practices”
Saturday, April 5th, 2014 – 10:00AM to 3:30PM
The traditional prayers of our youth and adult lives have enriched and nurtured our faith. As we evolve and grow deeper in our relationship with God we discover that there are many ways we are touched and experience the Divine. Join us this spring as we gather and explore many ways of praying. As we leave winter’s starkness and move into longer and brighter days, we will capture the spirit of stillness and waiting, as the seeds hidden deep in the earth beneath our feet. We will allow ourselves to be nurtured by silence as we listen to the small still voice within. Please bring a Bible and silk scarf with you.

Date: April 26th, 2013 - 10am – 3:30pm
Miriam Teresa Demjanovich was born in Bayonne, New Jersey in 1901. After attending Bayonne public schools, Miriam Teresa entered the College of Saint Elizabeth in Convent Station, New Jersey and graduated in 1923. In 1925, she entered the Sisters of Charity at Convent Station. After profession of vows as a Sister of Charity, Miriam Teresa died in Saint Elizabeth Hospital, New Jersey in 1927. She was 26 years of age. Because of her saintly life, her spiritual writings and the favors received through her intercession with God, the Sisters of Charity petitioned Rome for permission to open her Cause for Beatification and Canonization. This day will offer the opportunity to learn about Sister Miriam Teresa’s life and spirituality. We will be invited to grow in our own spiritual journey through opening ourselves more deeply to our baptismal call to holiness. The miracle that has been attributed to her intercession and submitted to Rome will be shared.
