Silence - Solitude - Service
Kuala Lumpur Chapter, Malaysia
The Office of our Centering Prayer Kuala Lumpur Chapter, Malaysia, is located at the Parish of The Good Shepherd, in the vicinity of Setapak, Kuala Lumpur.
Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina prayer sessions are conducted here in the Parish Resource Centre every Monday evening from 8.00pm to 10.00pm.
Though Centering Prayer is done privately by individuals most of the time, these weekly prayer sessions (conducted as a support group for all practicing members) enjoy good and regular attendance.
The sharing of the experience of Centering Prayer together with others on a weekly basis, has indeed proven to be very beneficial to the many who have participated.
These once-a-week prayer gatherings serve as a vital source of encouragement to all our practitioners. To quote Fr. Thomas Keating: `The purpose of such weekly support group meeting is a spiritual refreshment and mutual encouragement in the practice.'
DAY OF PRAYER WITH THE LORD
In this parish we also organize bi-monthly `Day of Prayer with the Lord' sessions -- this is the coming together of our practicing members for a full day of special Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina sessions, from 8.30am to 3.30pm. The participation in these prayer days are very encouraging and the attendance is oftentime much more than our usual weekly Centering Prayer sessions.
The attendance to these days of prayer are not limited only to the members of the Parish of Good Shepherd. It is also open to the other prayer groups in the Kuala Lumpur areas. We have had few meaningful coming together at these prayer days with members from the other prayer groups.
Do check in our Chapter Programme in the Menu for more detailed timings and dates for these `Day of Prayer with the Lord'. All are welcome to join us.
For general information, we are pleased to announce that The Church of The Good Shepherd, Setapak; is also the official `Host Parish' for Centering Prayer for all the parishes of the North District of the Kuala Lumpur Archdiocese. (This was officially published in `The Herald' in the 30th October 2005 issue)
