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.

 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/
