Dear Friend of Centering Prayer,

The Leadership Team of Contemplative Outreach of Hawaii appreciates your prayers and support and calls upon you for a donation in response to our annual fund appeal. 

As members of the COHI Leadership Team, we volunteer for this organization because we believe in Centering Prayer as a method of prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of God’s presence.  Through the generosity of supporters who donate money and volunteers who donate their time.  Some of our events included:

  • On-going support for over 20 prayer groups on four islands
  • Introduction to Centering Prayer Programs on most islands
  • Monthly Mornings of Prayer on Oahu;
  • Three multi-day retreats with commuter options and scholarships available; 
  • Other special programs
  • Annual United in Prayer Day gatherings;

We hope that you participated in some of these events and that they support you in your Centering Prayer Practice.  We ask for your continued participation and support to fund these activities in the coming year. 

We appreciate offerings in response to this letter as well as the generous offerings many of you give at our events.  We also appreciate that many members of our COHI community contribute their valuable time and talent.

Mahalo for your consideration of this letter.  Please let us know if you have ideas to improve our Hawaii Chapter of Contemplative Outreach. 

With blessings and gratitude for you,

Jean Benfer
