About Our Community

Welcome to our online contemplative community for anyone interested in the spiritual practice of meditation and lectio divina. We offer virtual meditation chapels, open at different days and times each week, where you can experience the enrichment and community of online contemplation. These chapels are hosted by the faith communities of Old St. Patrick’s (Chicago, IL) and St. Margaret Mary (Naperville, IL) and are open to all.

The chapel experience is one hour long and takes place in two parts. We connect together in our online chapel through the video conferencing platform, Zoom. The first half of our time is spent together in silent prayer/meditation. To see, hear and join with others throughout our community and beyond can be a profoundly connecting, expansive and intimate experience.
