Keynote: Grounding Your Ministry in Prayer

Presented by Rev. James Martin, SJ

All Catholic ministers know that prayer is an essential part of their spiritual life and their ministry. Yet often we are confused about what is supposed to happen when we close our eyes. How do I know when God is speaking to me? And how can I speak to God about my Ministry? Let Father Martin help deepen your prayer life and thus your ministry.
