Suzanne has served as facilitator for the Centering Prayer groups at St. David's Episcopal Church in Kennebunk, Maine, and St. Ann's-By-The-Sea Episcopal Church in Kennebunkport, Maine for the past seven years. She has received training as a Centering Prayer Introductory Workshop presenter in May, 2021. It was on a retreat at St. Benedict's Monastery in Snowmass, Colorado that Suzanne first met and was taught the practice of Centering Prayer by Fr. Thomas Keating, then abbot of St. Benedict's. She was also part of the founding community of Contemplative Outreach of Metropolitan Washington, D.C., under the spiritual leadership and formation of the Rt. Reverend Eugene Sutton, now Episcopal Bishop of Maryland. Upon hearing the opening invitation to "Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46: 10) she learned to "consent to the transforming action of God within" in the 20 minute period of silence which followed.
