IN-PERSON AND LIVE STREAMED
As physical exercise aims to strengthen the physical core of a person, so spiritual exercise aims to strengthen the spiritual core. This presentation aims to help listeners consider the possibility of greater interior capacity through spiritual exercise, resulting in a stronger and more resilient way of moving forward in life.

Emphasizing the importance of listening, reflecting, learning, discussing and praying, St. Mark’s Centre for Christian Engagement seeks to enable the creation of a culture of encounter and dialogue by creating opportunities to address the challenges associated with the disengagement of Christians from the Church and the life of faith.
