Spiritual Practice  

We live our lives with family and friends, in the workplace and as citizens of cities and nations. It is in the routines of those places and circumstances that we serve one another. It is there that we can be "instruments of the divine compassion."

Our spiritual life might be described as an oscillation; a cycle between renewal and apostolate and back again, a movement from awe and adoration to service and back again. This is the process by which we sustain our identity and integrity as persons baptized into the Body of Christ. In renewal we give ourselves to the spiritual practices that place us in the pathways of God's love and grace.

Our hope is that what we offer here will serve people seeking ancient spiritual practices so they may effectively and faithfully engage contemporary life.
