Cultivate a Rich and Lasting Prayer Life

When You Pray: A Clear Path to a Deeper Relationship with God. You know prayer is important. But, sometimes find it challenging. Perhaps it’s hard to find time, or you’re unsure what to do when you pray. Or maybe you feel discouraged by your weaknesses and your inability to overcome them.

If you have any of these feelings, you are not alone. Many of the saints struggled in prayer. They were like us. But each time they fell, they got up again and learned to rely more on God’s grace.

What God did in the lives of countless saints, he wants to do in the lives of ordinary people like us. And that’s what this study is about: the journey of prayer God wants to take us on.

We invite you to join this next session of St. Mary’s CAFE, where we’ll begin a journey on a clear path to a deeper relationship with God. Using Ascension’s newest study, with Dr. Edward Sri, and filmed on location throughout Italy, including Assisi, Rome and Siena, and featuring insights from Father Fr. Jacques Philippe, Father Josh Johnson and Sister Maris Stella, among others. Be transformed by God’s grace!

Begins Thursday, September 7th, 9:00 AM, with both in-person and virtual groups. Register below. For those who wish, we will begin this first session of When You Pray, in prayer at 8:00 AM at Holy Mass in Church.

Persevere in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.” (Colossians 4:2)
