Hundreds of Catholic Sisters Headed To OC For National Convention, Have A Mass Meditation Planned

Things are about to get hella holy around here.
Each day the sisters are going to partake in group meditation of sorts, or "contemplative prayer" as Sanders describes it. "It involves silence and mediation and real listening to one another, not just normal conversations."

Aside from seeking guidance on internal issues, the sisters will also use their time in Orange County to hear from some locals. "We're having some immigrants from the Garden Grove community come and speak, listening to people whose needs are great," Sanders says.
