LABYRINTH AND CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER
The parish has an outdoor labyrinth which may be walked at any time and open to the community. The Labyrinth is a symbol of an ancient pilgrimage. The layout design, modeled like the Chartres Cathedral in France, draws walkers inward along the circular path towards the center. Some may pause to pray along the path, especially upon reaching the center, before they continue along the winding path to the exit, exactly where the journey began.
Guided walks and programs about the labyrinth take place throughout the year.
On the second Sunday of the month, a 5pm Taizé worship service is offered, featuring prayer, silence, rhythmic singing, Scripture, and the Holy Eucharist. This brief 30-minute service is patterned after the prayerful practice of the Taizé community of France.
"For God alone my soul waits in silence,
for my hope is from him."
