Website Review: Shalom Prayer Center

A review based on:


The Shalom Prayer Center is a retreat ministry of the Benedictine Sisters of Mt. Angel Monastery in Mt. Angel, Oregon. The Center claims to be rooted in the Benedictine spiritual tradition; however, the programs offered are more consistent with feminism and paganism than Catholic spirituality. Rather than offering programs and material to help Catholics grow in their faith and love of God, both the site and the Center itself seem to focus on New Age spirituality, paganism and secular psychology.
