Reading, Praying, Living God’s Word

“A Workshop on How to Pray with the Bible”

Please join us for a special workshop on “Reading, Praying, Living God’s Word: A Workshop on How to Pray with the Bible” on Tuesday, August 11, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. here at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 406 E. Pinhook Road, Lafayette. An ancient approach to prayerful reading of the Bible known as lectio divina (or “sacred reading”) teaches us to listen to God’s Word, to apply God’s Word to our lives, and to pray from the heart. This way of prayer can lead to a deeper relationship with the Lord.  If it is practiced on a regular basis, lectio divina can change our lives and, through our actions, the world. Facilitated by Fr. Ken Broussard, this workshop will guide participants in the practice of lectio divina. Participants are encouraged to bring their Bibles with them. There is no cost to attend and pre-registration is not required.  For more information, please contact Mary Bergeron (654-8682).
