Giving to COSTL

Filed in Reflections, Service opportunity by on December 26, 2019

Dear Member of the COSTL Community,

COSTL had a great year in 2019! We offered a weekend retreat, an eight-day retreat, many introductory workshops, Go Deeper events, a 30th Anniversary Celebration and supported over twenty-five prayer groups.  All in the service of keeping the work of Thomas Keating and Centering Prayer alive for all who need it.

Our mission is to introduce the centering prayer practice throughout the St. Louis area, and to support all those who make it a regular practice in their lives. In order to continue our outreach, it is important to keep the costs of our retreats and special events affordable. Additionally, we are committed to offering partial financial scholarships to those who can’t afford it, denying no one the transformative and healing benefit of Centering Prayer in their lives.

Won’t you consider a tax deductible gift to ensure that COSTL remains a vibrant and accessible organization?  COSTL’s need at this time is greater than usual as there has been no recent fundraising.

To donate by mail:  Mail your check to Contemplative Outreach of St. Louis, 514 E. Argonne Drive, Kirkwood, MO 63122.

To donate online through PayPal or using a major credit card:  Go to  Pay Pal also offers a convenient monthly donation option that you might consider.

Please note that if your donation is $250 or greater and you wish to use the gift as a tax deduction please make the check out to COL with COSTL in the memo line and mail your contribution to 514 E. Argonne, Kirkwood, MO 63122.

Thank you for your support.  Together we can respond generously to the call of the Divine Presence to spread the good news of transforming union with the God who loves us.

Peace and Gratitude,

Wes Berg and Bill Schwindt

Co-Coordinators of COSTL
