1. A practical method of learning to pray in an orderly and progressive manner, in the sense that they progress from the simplest experiences of beginners to the heights of contemplation.

HOW DOES MINISTRY SEEK TO ACHIEVE THESE GOALS: The Workshops do this through a course of 15 two-hour weekly sessions. Rather than theoretical, the source is concrete and practical.
