Adult Forum

Adult Forum is our main Sunday adult education offering. It takes place Sundays from 9:15 to 10:15 am in the Langner Lounge.

Sunday adult classes for October 2017 at Trinity, Easton.

October 8, 15, & 22: Contemplative Prayer with the Rev. Frances Hlavacek, Deacon

“Mindfulness.  We hear about it, wish to cultivate it in our lives, but assume it is something we cannot achieve or quite frankly, even understand. Our own Christian faith has a rich history of Contemplative prayer. From Brother Lawrence finding prayer in everyday tasks to Thomas Merton’s monastic Centering Prayer, there is a type of contemplation that can fit with every person’s prayer style. Deacon Fran will be touching on just a few practices in our adult forums on October 8, 15 and 22.

Contemplative practice deepens our prayer life  and hopefully teach us to hold, however briefly, those moments of stillness gained through this style of praying. We hope you will  join us.

Deacon Fran is a spiritual director certified by the Oasis Program, a 2 years course of study which includes a variety  of Christian contemplative practices. Her studies took place in the bucolic mountains of Bangor , Pennsylvania  through the Kirkridge Retreat Centerr.

Spiritual direction is journeying with an individual as they seek to deepen their relationship with God. Please contact Deacon Fran  if you would like more information.

About the 2017 leaders of Adult Class:

The Rev. Frances Hlavacek, Deacon: “Fran”  is currently working on her Bachelor’s degree in Social Work through Briar Cliff University. She is also completing a program in spiritual direction through a program called Oasis. Fran says, “I find both topics very interesting, satisfying and needed.” When she is not studying, she enjoys cooking (baking not so much!), yoga, hiking and kayaking. She says she also looks forward to the day “that I can read books on which I will not be tested.” In describing herself she says, “I like to think of myself as an environmentalist, and several parishioners in my previous parish called me the ‘tree-hugger hippie deacon.’ I wore that title with pride!” Deacon Fran graduated from Oasis Ministries for Spiritual Development in the Spiritual Direction for Spiritual Guides program, May 2017 and holds a certificate in Spiritual Direction. If you are in need of a spiritual director (or sometimes called, “companion”) please contact Deacon Fran. Father Gerns says, “having quality spiritual direction is part of our parish’s ministry.”
