Our mission statement:
We come together individually and/or in a group to foster the process of transformation in Christ in
one another through the practice of Centering Prayer.
Our group began in 2000 with six amazing women who found Centering Prayer both individually
and/or in a group a beautiful way to rest in God and grow in the gifts of the Spirit in their daily lives.

faith and bond the members together in mutual friendship and love.” (“The Method of Centering
The Saint Mark’s Group meets weekly on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. We meet via Zoom

sharing; the second half of our gathering is spent in 20 minutes of silence – a Centering Prayer
period or sitting. New members are always welcome, and a welcome packet is provided.
