Invitations to Pray and Build Community

Trinity Faith Sharing Groups: These small faith sharing groups, which meet for eight weeks, offer parishioners a chance to meet in a small group to discuss the Sunday scriptures and the ways they intersect with our lives. Please visit the Trinity Faith Sharing webpage for more information.

Praying in Sacred Space: Saturdays, 4-5pm.
Held during Advent and Lent, Praying in Sacred Space offers the opportunity to pray with the upcoming Sunday readings in a way St. Ignatius introduces us to in the Spiritual Exercises. During the hour, savor the contemplative silence, grow in sensitivity to your interior movements, and share with others who are seeking God’s presence during these times of ‘not knowing’ and of hope.  Hosted by the 5th Week Group: Living the Spiritual Exercises.

Christian Meditation: All interested in centering prayer are welcome to gather with parishioners in the Chapel of St. Ignatius every Thursday from 6:00–6:30 pm to meditate in the John Main tradition. No prior experience or registration is necessary. For more information about Christian Meditation, contact Jack Person at 202-569-3180 or through email at jwp@uchicago.edu. Hablamos español.

Zen Meditation: A small group of parishioners gather every Saturday morning on Zoom from 7:30-8:45 am for walking and sitting meditation. No prior experience or registration is necessary. All are welcome. Please contact Robert Druecker at rdruecker@aol.com for the link or if you have any questions.
