307 Prayer and Spirituality


Unfortunately, this class is cancelled due to a low number of participants. This class will be offered on June 18 & 25
St. Ann [Coppell].

This course explores our relationship with the living God, which we call prayer. God continuously calls, we respond. Our Christian spirituality is centered in Jesus Christ and guided by the Holy Spirit. It is also modeled by the acceptance of Mary to the call of God, the Our Father and its seven petitions revealing the heart of the Gospel, and the Eucharist as the prayer of the community.


At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the dynamics of prayer: listening and responding to God’s call
  • Identify different types of prayer
  • Understand prayer as an important aspect of our spiritual life
  • Understand that prayer is shaped by Sacred Scripture and by the life of the community of
