Tuesday Evening Lectio Divina Group - Diving into the Sunday Readings

The traditional monastic practice of Lectio Divina (Latin for “holy/divine reading”) provides a way to enter into Sacred Scripture as a living Word for our time. Lectio Divina becomes more about divine listening than divine reading when we take the time to do it. This is why we pray Lectio Divina — to become better listeners of the Lord, to hear more clearly what God is asking of us - opening ourselves to peace, gratitude, and living rooted in Christ.

The basic idea is to spend time listening deeply and intently to what God might have to say to you through Scripture—almost as if the sacred text were a much-cherished love letter from God. Lectio Divina is like a deep conversation with a best friend. It is not a study method. Background knowledge can be helpful but is not essential.  Our real goal is to meet our Lord as we read his Word and allow him to transform our lives to be more like him through the work of the Holy Spirit.

Join us as we meet online every TUESDAY evening, to dive deeper into the upcoming Sunday Mass readings. There is no commitment to join every week, just come whenever you can, spend some time praying through Scripture and sharing with each other.

Friday Adoration and Spiritual Direction at All Saints

We all face trials and carry burdens in our journey of life. However, as Christians, we do not carry these crosses alone. There is One who walks with us, helps us and brings peace to our hearts, if we turn to Him. So, come and find rest and peace before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. 

Every 3rd, 4th & 5th Friday between 11am and 1pm, there will be Eucharistic Adoration in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel at All Saints Church (Hüttenweg 46, 14195 Berlin). Fr. Sylvester will also be available for individual prayer and spiritual direction, except during his January absence.

Women at the Well - Women's Group

Women of all ages are welcome to join our “Women at the Well” group. We meet weekly on Monday mornings between 10:15-11:15am on Zoom, to pray with the Book of Proverbs through Lectio Divina.

God made us for community, to share His love, so this is also a time for laughter, friendship, support, encouragement and spiritual growth.
