Carl McColman

Learning to Pray with the Saints and Mystics

One of life’s most important questions is simply this: “How can I draw closer to God?” Traditionally this means learning how to pray. The Catholic tradition is blessed by 2,000 years of history in which holy men and women have left us advice and instruction on how to draw closer to God. We will explore different approaches to Christian prayer, grounded in the wisdom of the saints and mystics, and presented in a practical, down to earth way. We will pray together, learn together, spend time in silence, and hopefully have some fun as well.

This event is offered for laity and religious, with a late afternoon/evening schedule suitable for commuters.

Carl McColman is a Lay Cistercian – a Catholic layperson under the spiritual guidance of Trappist monks. He is the author of several books on Christian spirituality, including Befriending Silence, The Big Book of Christian Mysticism and Answering the Contemplative Call.
