Windows of the Spirit: Praying with Icons (Presented via ZOOM)

Icons are becoming more familiar to Christians in our modern days.  They are more than just a lovely image depicting Our Lord, the Blessed Mother and the Angels and Saints.  They are windows into the realm of the spirit where God speaks to the soul in a powerful, dynamic way. This evening of prayer will introduce the participants to the practice of praying before an icon.  Several icons will be used to help the participants move beyond the obvious and open their hearts to a deeper communion with God.

Logistics:  This is a virtual experience using ZOOM.  The session begins at 6:30 PM and ends at 8:30 PM.  The ZOOM link will be emailed to you the day before the presentation along with any handouts.  If you are unfamiliar with  ZOOM there are directions on the website under the Events/Retreat Tab.
