Mayotte, Gail
Catholic Education: A Journal of Inquiry and Practice, v13 n3 p329-349 Mar 2010
This article presents a research study that utilized a web-based survey to gather data about the communal prayer experiences of faculty members in Catholic elementary and secondary schools in the United States and the meaning that such prayer holds to its participants. Key findings show that faculty prayer experiences take place readily, though frequency and form vary greatly. Faculty prayer is valued and desired by the overwhelming majority of its participants. Challenges are also acknowledged with the most prevalent relating to time and/or scheduling issues. Suggestions for addressing needs and challenges are provided. (Contains 7 tables and 1 figure.)
