Coadjutor Archbishop Nienstedt to lead monthly prayer sessions here for college-age women and men
Coadjutor Archbishop John Nienstedt will lead a series of monthly prayer sessions for college-age men and women in the Florance Chapel, located in the lower level of the Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas at the University of St. Thomas.
The sessions are called “lectio divina,” which is Latin for “divine reading” or “spiritual reading.” The sessions will run from 8 to 9 p.m. on the first Sunday of every month, excluding January 2008. The dates are Oct. 7, Nov. 4 and Dec. 2, 2007; and Feb. 3, March 2, April 6 and May 4, 2008.
Lectio divina, according to Nienstedt, is a method of prayer and scriptural reading intended to promote communion with God and to provide spiritual insights. It is a way of praying with Scripture that calls one to ponder, listen and pray from God’s word.
A brief reception with refreshments will follow each service. The Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas is located on the eastern edge of the university’s St. Paul campus. It is on Cleveland Avenue, near Ashland Avenue.
