Prayer & Worship

“For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.” – St. Thérèse of Lisieux

“Whether prayer is expressed in words or gestures, it is the whole man who prays. But in naming the source of prayer, Scripture speaks sometimes of the soul or the spirit, but most often of the heart (more than a thousand times). According to Scripture, it is the heart that prays. If our heart is far from God, the words of prayer are in vain” (CCC 2562)

Consecration to Jesus through Mary

  • Once a semester CTK has a group that provides some community and discussion surrounding the daily reflection and prayer each day leading up to the consecration with Fr. Michael Gaitley’s book “33 Days to Morning Glory”.
