To Treasure the Faith like never before

The Adventure of Faith | Lectio Divina | Moral Life and Virtue | God’s Call  

School of Prayer is designed with one goal in mind: to help you rediscover the Christian life as the most beautiful and valuable treasure in the world.

Over 9 weeks, walk through a crash course in the spiritual life and light a spark in your heart through prayer, learning, and fellowship, without putting work and family life on hold.

“Going out about five o’clock, he found others standing around, and said to them, ‘Why do you stand here idle all day?’ They answered, ‘Because no one has hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You too go into my vineyard.’” (Matthew 20:6-7)

Join us and enter the Lord’s vineyard as we develop a personal relationship with Jesus, learn the great adventure of being Catholic, and come to treasure the Faith like never before!

The Wisdom of the Church

Simple, but Powerful

Daily mental prayer (meditation) is the non-negotiable center.

Fellowship provides encouragement and support.

Discernment centers holiness on responding to God’s will.

Asceticism & Silence help us regain self-mastery, remove attachments,  and create a space for God, so we can remain united to Him.

Required For Everyone

Essential Commitments

School of Prayer is open to any Catholic seriously looking to grow in their Faith. This means a willingness to: 

  • First, devote yourself to mental prayer (one on one conversation with the Lord and meditation, not devotionals)
  • Second, commit to attend the weekly meetings
  • Third, passionately dive into the great truths of the Faith

Daily Commitments

  • Mental Prayer (30 min.)
  • Daily Examen (5-10 min.)
  • Regular Journaling 

Weekly Commitments

  • 1 hour meeting each week
  • Review past week’s prayer (15 min.)

You must be ready to faithfully follow these commitments

Timeline and Structure

A Shared Goal

Each day prayer is based on readings from Scripture. Then, we come together weekly to share the experiences and lights gleaned from time spent in prayer. Each of us is responsible to help carry our team forward.


  • 4 weeks – to learn meditation and discernment
  • 1 day – silent retreat
  • 4 weeks – to form habits to grow in your spiritual life

Asceticism and silence are crucial to the spiritual life, but it is up to each person to best discern the elements for them.

Why We Started Wildfire

The urgency and seriousness of this moment demands that, to the absolute best of our ability, we fan the flames of personal holiness into the renewal our Church so desperately needs.
Men and women saints have always been the source and origin of renewal in the most difficult circumstances in the Church’s history.

Today we have the greatest need of saints whom we must beg God to raise up. – St. John Paul II
