Christian Meditation

What is Christian meditation? 

Meditation is a universal spiritual wisdom and a practice that we find at the core of all the great religious traditions, leading from the mind to the heart. It is a way of simplicity, silence and stillness. It can be practised by anyone from wherever you are on your life’s journey. It is only necessary to be clear about the practice and then to begin – and keep beginning.


Meditation in the Christian tradition  comes to us from the early Christian monks - the Desert Fathers and Mothers and allows us to put into practice the teaching of Jesus on prayer in a radical and simple way.


Christian Meditation, led by Fr Vince, is on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm in the Church at St Bernard's. All welcome. 



~St Bernard’s Parish community is proud to acknowledge the Wathaurong People as the first custodians and original inhabitants of the area. May we find continued unity in our shared love of this land.~
