The Spiritual Practices of Listening, Silence & Storytelling

Roughly coinciding with the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, Lent is a season of renewal and rebirth. As the world around us begins to reawaken, how do we, as God’s children, reawaken ourselves to our Creator? Worship, prayer, or service are not our only options; there are numerous other practices that, brought under a spiritual lens, can aid us in opening up to and increasing our intimacy with God and one another.

Join us for a three-part lecture series on three of these spiritual practices; listening, silence, and storytelling. Presented by The Rev’d Dr. Walter Hannam, The Rev’d Louise Peters, and The Very Rev’d Andrew Asbil, each lecture will providing an illuminating view on these practices, and how we can use them in our journey to bring ourselves closer to God.

Each evening begins with contemplative service in the Cathedral at 6:00pm, followed by light supper in the Cathedral Centre (65 Church St) at 6:30pm. The lecture begins at 7:00pm, also in the Cathedral Centre.
