Preparing for the Lenten Journey 


  • Sunday Feb. 24 in Guelph


  • Saturday March 2 in Guelph

"The discipline of putting time aside every day allowed a deepening awareness of God through prayer, contemplation, Bible readings, insights, relived experiences, unexpected gifts, and joys and sadness. Through it all, even on the days when all I could summon was "God, I am tired", there was a sense of God's peace.

I am grateful for my prayer guide, who was able to show where God had been at work, what had been given, how much was happening in this time, the questions I might ask of God, and who was a wonderful companion on this part of my journey. Thanks to everyone who is involved in the Week of Guided Prayer."

What is the Week of Guided Prayer and Spiritual Exploration?

The Week of Guided Prayer and Spiritual Exploration is an opportunity for people to learn more about prayer and explore their spirituality, and is an experiential event.

Guided prayer and spiritual exploration are not reading about God, but developing, deepening and exploring a relationship with God.  Listening, reflection and awareness are at the heart of this week.

During the week you will be paired with an experienced guide who will suggest specific ways to meet God meaningfully, and guide you in various spiritual practices. 

The week is a gift you give to yourself and God.

What to Expect

You will meet daily for about 30 minutes with your guide, who will provide you with scripture passages, poems or stories, art activities and/or meditations for you to explore or pray with at home between meetings.

During this special retreat time you may wish to journal or capture your experiences in some way, and share as you wish with your guide.

Your confidential meetings with your guide are held in sacred trust, with the purpose of developing, deepening and exploring your relationship with God.,


It costs $35.00 to participate in the Week of Guided Prayer and Spiritual Exploration.
