Sisters Gabrielle Kocour and Sheila Carroll

Atchison opportunities for spiritual formation start in September

Sisters Gabrielle, Sheila lead Thursday morning programs

If you’re in Atchison on Thursday mornings, you might consider joining one of the two spiritual formation groups led by Sisters Gabrielle Kocour and Sheila Carroll.

“Bridges to Contemplative Living” is offered at 10:30 a.m. on the first and third Thursdays of the month at the Sophia Center, beginning September 3. Each session includes readings from a spiritual teacher, silence and contemplative prayer. This is the tenth year the sisters are leading these spiritual formation sessions, available to all spiritual seekers at no charge. Free will offerings are gratefully accepted.

“Lectio Divina with the Sunday Scriptures” is offered at 10:30 a.m. on the second and fourth Thursdays at Mount St. Scholastica, beginning Sept. 10. Lectio Divina is the traditional monastic practice of guided reading, listening, reflecting and responding to the Word of God in the Scriptures. This program is also offered at no charge, but free will offerings are gratefully accepted.
