Sacred Heart Parish, 509 Capital St, Yankton, SD 57078, welcomes you to Lenten Vespers, on Sunday evening, March 5 at 7 p.m. Planned by Fr. Thi Pham, the Benedictine Peace Center and the musicians of Sacred Heart Monastery, the prayer experience will begin with a short introduction to Liturgy of the Hours – its place in the prayer life of the Church and the meaning of its structure and rhythm. No RSVP necessary.
The Liturgy of the Hours, along with lectio divina, is the definitive prayer style of Benedictine spirituality. Here at the monastery, we invite you to join us for morning and evening prayer. Sunday and feastday prayers are in Bishop Marty Memorial Chapel, while daily prayer is in the Peace Chapel, lower level of Bishop Marty Memorial Chapel.
Come to learn about the ancient prayer of lectio divina, a way of praying the Scriptures. The session will include a teaching about this unique approach to prayer that holds appeal for persons at every stage of spiritual development, different personality types, and various Christian traditions. Lectio is typically a solitary experience; however, used in a small group, lectio provides a powerful mode for faith-sharing. Following a teaching about the history and recent recovery of this way of praying participants will have a chance to practice shared lectio. For more information, contact S.
