"another name for patience" *


The Kathleen Deignan, CND Institute for Earth and Spirit
invites you to join the
Benedictine Grange Prayer Community
in our live virtual Advent celebrations each Saturday evening at 7 PM (ET).  

Join us during the four Saturdays of Advent for deep prayer and warm community as we enter contemplatively into a Liturgy of the Word.
Led by lay ministers of The Grange, and supported by the rich repertoire of original sacred songs by Schola Ministries, our evenings of preparation for the Festival of Incarnation draw us into  depths of refreshment and awakening. 

Our spiritual guide for the season is Thomas Merton in dialogue with Kathleen Deignan, CND.  You are most welcome to join our virtual Advent Community prayer via ZOOM at this link:
