Lectio Divina with Cardinal Thomas Collins
Sunday November 1 2015, 7:00 PM – 8:15 PM
St. Peter’s Parish 840 Bathurst St., Toronto
Lectio Divina (“divine or sacred reading”) is the name given to a spiritual tradition among Christians over the last two thousand years. This form of prayer involves three distinct stages: a) reading a short scripture passage, b) reflecting on the passage, and c) a short period of silence. We begin with Vespers (evening prayer at 7:00 PM) followed by Lectio Divina from 7:30 to 8:15 PM.
All are welcome to join Cardinal Collins for this special evening of prayer.
Lectio Divina is recorded by Salt and Light Catholic Media for future broadcast. During the extensive renovations at St. Michael’s Cathedral, Lectio Divina will be traveling to parishes around the Archdiocese in 2015/2016.
Donations of baked goods and preserves requested! Sign-up sheets can be found at the back of the church!
