Welcome to the Saint Mary’s College of California
Office of Mission and Ministry Meditation website.

This is God’s project to help other people meditate and learn to use meditation for prayer, and to develop themselves. We envision it going to all our schools, and for the faculty staff and students, and that they also may learn to share this with their family and friends. And so the Schools of the Brothers may begin to spread this beautiful practice throughout the world, because Saint LaSalle said the most important religious exercise of the Brothers is to meditate daily.

    Classroom and Workshop participant comments

most important exercise of the day
"Even just a five-minute meditation can recall us to the fact that we are in the presence of a God who loves us with an overwhelming love. This is the Christian and specifically Lasallian heritage - in the Rule of the Brothers the most important exercise of the day is interior prayer..."

workshop cds are available
"CD's containing guided meditations to help you build your personal meditation practice are available at the workshops.
