Each week on Tuesday evening we offer a one-hour talk about a different theological topic. The presenter is our pastor, Father James Wallace, and we gather in the chapel, located in the ministry center building.
We hope you'll find the talks interesting and helpful in your faith formation. The talks are not interdependent of each other, so feel free to join us when you can. All are welcome!
Topics and dates are listed below; click the title for more information and a printable outline of the evening's topic. Scroll down for the recordings of previous sessions.
Learn what prayer is and how to pray!Fr. James Wallace, the pastor of Saint Juliana Parish, will be offering a four-week series on “Prayer and the Spiritual Life.” He will discuss the different styles and methods of prayer, including Lectio Divina, contemplation, devotional prayer like the Rosary and Eucharistic Adoration, centering prayer, and more. The various “schools” of spirituality (Benedictine, Carmelite, Ignatian) will be presented, along with a history of prayer. The goal is not simply to teach about prayer, but to teach how to pray. In each session there will be a demonstration of prayer and a chance to pray, as well as the opportunity to share personal experiences of prayer and ask questions. People of all levels, from beginners to mystics, are welcome!
