Participants: Laity, deacons, priests and bishops are welcome. This is for a group of 3 - 5 participants. If less than three register we'll cancel.

Register no later than 10/8/19. If more than five register we'll keep a wait-list and contact you if someone drops out. If the registrations exceed 8 we'll consider offering the program a second time. 

Date: Saturday October 19, 2019

Times: 9:30 am – 12:30 pm  Please be on time. You'll need time to find a parking space.

The Program: You'll explore several ways of saying the Daily Office on your own. We assume you want to find a way that maintains the tradition and fits your temperament and circumstances.

Elements of the Program:

  1. Morning Prayer
  2. A way of thinking about it – a model, theory
  3. Experiential learning – reflection and learning from your experience
  4. A spiritual practice or two to use
  5. How you see yourself making use of what you’ve learned
  6. A short time on how this applies to a parish church
  7. A booklet, book, or packet to take away

Follow up: About a week after the program you'll receive an e-mail inviting you to assess how things went and ask any question you may have. We'll respond within a few days with any thoughts we may have about how you might persevere in saying the Daily Office.


Registration:
 Send an email to Robert Gallagher, OA with your name, email address, phone number, and a bit about yourself. You must register by October 8.

Materials fee: $15.00 This goes toward the cost of materials used in the program. You can give us a check made out to the “Order of the Ascension” or cash (we’ll give you a receipt and send it onto the Order).

Location: 220 W. Olympic Place, Apt 202, Seattle, WA 98119. This is Fr. Robert’s home. 

Coffee & Tea: Tea and instant Starbucks coffee will be available. If you want “real” coffee, Café Ladro is located at the corner of N. Queen Anne and Roy St., a few blocks from our location.

Coaches: Michelle Heyne, OA, Presiding Sister of the Order; Robert Gallagher, OA.  http://www.orderoftheascension.org/the-program-leaders/
