Labyrinth ministry: Journeys of faith

Church of the Redeemer hosts labyrinth walks each third Tuesday on the month during the program year in the Parish Hall in the main building. A guided walk begins at 7:00 pm and lasts about an hour.

Please try to arrive a bit before 7:00. We do understand life and area traffic. We ask latecomers to enter quietly. You will receive individual instruction about the evening’s theme while others are walking. You will want at least a half-hour to walk so that you won’t be rushed in your walk.

The team prepares the labyrinth space at 6:30 pm. The team will begin storing the labyrinth supplies about 8:00 pm. Join in set up and storing if you wish. The important thing is to come and walk.

Why walk a labyrinth?

An ongoing practice of labyrinth walking can be an exciting and meaningful discipline. Labyrinth walking, whether on one’s feet or on a table top with a finger or stylus, can add to the journey of faith.

Labyrinths are walked for a variety of reasons. Examples include the following:

  • Listen to God.
  • Find the quiet center of one’s life.
  • Facilitate calm and stillness in a hectic world.
  • Celebrate joyful occasions and happenings.
  • Receive insights on problems.
  • Seek faithful clarity amidst life’s challenges and opportunities.
  • Seek healing for emotional and/or spiritual wounds.
  • Work on forgiveness.
  • Commemorate significant events or holy days.
