We offer a walking labyrinth found in the parish gym. Taking time out in the day to trace the labyrinth provides a way to become more closely drawn into the mystery of God. Please come and walk with us.

The use of the labyrinth is growing in popularity among Christians seeking a deeper spiritual experience as it can be used in the quietness and privacy of your home. There are many ways to use the labyrinth and no two people will have the same experience using it.

It is recommended to approach the labyrinth as you would commence a spiritual journey, with an open mind and a prayerful desire to spend time with God. Pause along the way to reflect, listen and spend time in silence so that you can connect with how God is leading you on your life’s journey. When you reach the centre, spend time in this sacred space to pray and share with God your concerns and feelings.

Then begin the outward journey by retracing your steps along the path to the outside edge. This is where you begin your mission of ‘going out’ to the world. During this phase you may want to call on God to strengthen you for life’s journey and to empower you to show love to others.
