Stilling Prayer

7.30pm to 8.10pm on Mondays
Stilling Prayer
at Sacrista Prebend Retreat House or via Zoom.
Use the written reflection at a time that suits you.

Stilling Prayer is the Sacrista’s group that explores the Christian tradition of silent prayer. And in our time, with its all-pervasive messaging of all kinds, texting, social media trending, 24/7 news exposure etc that bombard our jangled minds and spirits, this practice of the ancient accumulated wisdom found in this form of prayer, is ever more relevant and liberating for our inner-selves. It enables us to live fully, God aware and as responsive disciples.

But like all forms of prayer, we learn mostly, not by reading or talking about it, but by simply doing it. And being part of a group practicing silent prayer together is probably one of the best ways to start, as well as to continue an exploration of it. We offer the chance to do this in three ways. You can:

  • join the gathering in the Sacrista Chapel on Monday evenings from 7.30 – 8.10
  • join the email distribution group to receive the weekly reflection and share in it either at the same time on a Monday or at another time convenient for you
  • join via a Zoom link in real-time of the actual Monday gathering in the Chapel. Folk using this have said how it helps them to focus and feel part of a group experience

If you are interested, drop a line to Stephen, our coordinator, who will happily help you settle into the group in whatever way suits you. Contact him on

Please see the Sacrista Prebend Prayer and Meditation page for Reflections for each week.
