Contemplative Mass
Nov 21 @ 6:30 pm – 6:45 pm
Contemplative Mass

We are constantly pulled to different directions in life. We are distracted by many things, like Martha to whom Jesus says, “Martha Martha, you are worried about many things, Mary has chosen the better part.” We believe each of us has a calling. Some of us are called to be Martha and others are called to be Mary. Some who are active and others who are contemplative. Our spiritual satisfaction comes from knowing where we belong and how we gather our energy.

Contemplative Mass is a celebration of the Liturgy with silence, integrating Lectio Divina practice and centering so that some of us who need internal quietness can experience and deepen their relationship with Christ. This is a powerful form of worship for those who need quiet, peaceful and solemn worship experience. With simple inspiring music and chants in the background, this celebration becomes some of the best forms of worship for many who are seeking solitude while they pray.

Evening Of Healing
Nov 28 @ 6:30 pm – 7:15 pm
Evening Of Healing

The primary ministry of Jesus is healing. He came to this world to reconcile and heal. His mission was to bring redemption, change, and wholeness which is taken away from us every day through our acts of omission or commission.

In this healing service, our priest and trained ministers through the laying on of hands implores God’s healing touch upon all who need it. You will be invited to come forward to the altar to experience the power of Jesus who can heal memories of the past, moments of life now and movements of the future. When the paralyzed was brought to Jesus, or when the blind or lame were brought to Him, Jesus first removed the obstacles for healing by forgiving their sins. Jesus helped those who came to him to get in touch with their inner self and encouraged them to make a change in their lifestyle. “Come follow me.”

Anointing with oil is an integral part of this worship night. Communion from the table completes the evening. Anyone from any background of faith or not, seeking healing is invited to join.

Taize Prayer Service

“Since my youth, I think that I have never lost the intuition that community life could be a sign that God is love, and love alone. Gradually the conviction took shape in me that it was essential to create a community with men determined to give their whole life and who would always try to understand one another and be reconciled, a community where kindness of heart and simplicity would be at the centre of everything.”

Brother Roger: “God is love alone”
