Prayer & Meditation


Santa Clara University is one of the most beautiful campuses in the entire country in the midst of the busy Silicon Valley. It lends itself to reflection if you let it.

It is so important to carve out time for regular prayer and/or meditation, especially when it feels like there is no time for it. If you don't have time for our regular program offerings, hopefully this page will give you some concrete ways to reflect.
