 TERESIAN PRAYER GROUP

 “No one ever took God for his friend that was not amply rewarded; for mental prayer is, in my opinion, nothing else but being on terms of friendship with God, frequently conversing alone with Him, who, we know, loves us.”   St Teresa of Avila


The Teresian Prayer Group meets once a month in the Carmelite Priory.  The aim of the Group is for its members to grow in prayer, following the teachings of St Teresa of Avila. Membership of the Group is free and anyone can join.

The monthly meetings typically have a distinguished Carmelite speaker, a time of quiet prayer and small group discussion,  In 2019/20 they will normally be on a Thursday evening at 6.30 for 6.45 pm to 8.15 pm.

The first meeting in the new, autumn season will be on 10 October 2019, with a talk on St Teresa’s Invitation to Prayer by Mark Courtney OCDS, the London Regional Representative of the Secular Carmelites.  This is an open meeting to which everyone is welcome.

The second meeting will be on 7 November, and will offer a further opportunity to join the Group.  The talk on St Teresa’s teaching on Detachment and Perseverance in Prayer will be given by Deborah van Kroonenburg OCDS, a well-known speaker and a teacher at Maryvale Institute.
