"...When the fire stone makes the sound, the darkness in the church is shaken with joy..." Mrs Kyoko Mary Kageyama
Are you longing for more space in your life, just to be, just to listen to your deepest self and the call of the mysterious depths of life? If so, then our new monthly gathering Sanctus may be just what you are looking for.
You do not need to hold any particular belief and you certainly do not have to fit into any human-made 'box' ! (all are welcome just as we are, whatever our age, background, sexual or gender identity, or giftedness) The name 'Sanctus' just means 'holy' and the idea is to set aside some 'holy ground' to sit with God and listen. Initially we are planning a gathering that will happen once a month on the last Saturday of the month. The next one will be on Saturday 31 March at 5pm at the Chapel of the Holy Spirit, St Francis College, 233, Milton Road, Milton. So what will happen and what could you expect?
At the heart of this gathering will be reflection and silence. That interval of silence will be supported by gentle music and chant, words from Scripture and from the world's great spiritual teachers, and a brief, thoughtful reflection. We aim to create a space of hospitality for all, in which we can be real with one another and with the reality many call 'God'. The contemplative gathering will be for about forty-five minutes, after which you are welcome to sit longer in the peaceful atmosphere, or join us in an adjoining space for some light refreshments and a chance to enjoy the company of others.
Sanctus is for those seeking simplicity, depth, and stillness. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing new developments as our community grows.
