Call to Connect (CTC) is a ministry that offers prayer, hospitality and sharing the faith journey using a familiar and effective prayer/sharing group model. Our aim is to strengthen the relationship between women and facilitate a deepening walk with God. We offer ‘ready to go’ resources with prayer session themes and a Leader’s Guide for women to use in small parish-based groups either in a face-to-face setting or online.

Christian Meditation

Contact person: Vikki McDonough
Phone Contact: 0437876487
Email Contact: Rod and Susan Page

How to get involved: Christian meditation is a form of prayer that is concerned primarily with listening. In this form of prayer we commit to stillness, silence and simplicity. We aim to become more open and receptive to God’s spirit, who Jesus tells us dwells in our hearts, as the spirit of love. In our time of prayer we are not talking to God, thinking about God or imagining God, we are instead being with God. Please know that you’d be welcome to connect with any of these groups at any time.
