Centering Prayer

A group of parish members meet with other members of the community to participate in the Centering Prayer, described by its founder, Brother Keating, as "a very simple method in which one opens one's self to God and consents to his presence in us and to his actions within us." Each meeting begins with a practice of Centering Prayer in the Chapel, followed by a discussion and/or teaching about Centering Prayer in the library.

Neighborhood Bible Study/Fellowship Groups

The Grovers are a group of church members, their neighbors and friends, who live in or near Buffalo Grove. The Group meets twice a month for bible study, prayer, and fellowship in a member's home. A "spin off" of the Grovers, the Brookies has formed at Sedgebrook Retirement Community in Lincolnshire. The Brookies meet monthly for dinner and a discussion of the Gospel for the upcoming Sunday. Additional affinity groups for other neighborhoods and for people in particular life circumstances are being planned with the help of the Grovers.
