Lenten Quiet Days at Well

Prayer is a plant, the seed of which is sown in the heart of every Christian, but its growth entirely depends on the care we take to nourish it. -Catherine McAuley

The Lenten Quiet Days are a reflective time for prayer, meditation and contemplation. A time to nurture and care for the seed sown in the heart.  Come and “be” at Well of Mercy where you can relax and hear the still small voice from God.  Sink into the quiet in a supportive environment surrounded by the beauty of nature. Well of Mercy is a place where you are welcomed to be in the Sacred space of the Chapel, explore the prayer path, walk the labyrinth, or just sit and ponder. This is an opportunity for solitude, silence and prayer during this Lenten season.

The Lenten Quiet Days are from 10a-4p on Tuesdays during Lent at Well of Mercy.  We will gather in the Chapel for a short orientation and a beginning contemplative practice.  The remainder of your Lenten Quiet Day is self-guided.
