PRAYER IN THE 21st CENTURY. We all know that prayer is an indispensable component of a deep and personal relationship with God. Yet for many of us, we either do not have the time to pray or are not sure what to do during prayer. Join us during this Lenten Reflection Series as we discuss different methods of prayer that can fit into even the busiest of schedules. Father Matt Bozovsky will show us how prayer speaks to the depths of our heart and our desire to experience God’s love.
