Christian Spiritual Practices: Lectio Divina

St. James Parish, Farmington
St. James Parish (virtual). Sign up/register at Sign Up Genius

We have an exciting Christian Formation year for our congregation and beyond. Partnered with the Spiritual Life Center (SLC), in West Hartford, we present a year on Christian Spiritual Practices. Part of walking the way of Jesus and truly living the Christian life means drawing forever closer to the Divine presence. In our busy lives, however, finding new, creative, and practical ways to live the Christian life and engage in our spiritual journey can be very challenging indeed.

Our next workshop on Christian Spiritual practices comes in November. A $5 contribution is appreciated (but not mandatory), to cover the cost of the workshop. Signup is available at
