We will offer an indoor labyrinth for meditation Sunday evenings, February 22-March 29, from 6:00-8:30p.m. There is no admission charge, and everyone is welcome.
The labyrinth is an ancient prayer and meditation tool. Labyrinths have been used for thousands of years to help people forget the difficulties of their everyday lives and draw closer to God.
Unlike a maze, there are no dead ends. There is only one path, so it is impossible to get lost. The simple action of walking a path is helpful in relieving stress. Some people view the labyrinth as an allegory for life, sometimes feeling close to God, only to be thrown suddenly out to the edge, or walking in unison with others and then at a distance from them.
St. Brigit also has a permanent outdoor labyrinth which is open to the public year-round. It is a full-size replica of the well-known labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France dating from 1220.
