The Community Is Invited to Make a Labyrinth Walk
By Trish Scalese | Posted November 9, 2023
St. Charles Borromeo Parish invites the community to a different kind of spiritual practice.
St. Charles purchased a 40 foot canvas labyrinth. The pattern of the labyrinth is based on the labyrinth found in the Chartres Cathedral in France. The labyrinth will be open November 14 to 16, from 9:30 am to 3 pm and from 6 pm to 8 pm each day. Please be sure to wear socks. All walkers will be asked to remove their shoes.
Labyrinth walking is an ancient practice used by many different faiths for spiritual centering, contemplation, and prayer. Entering the path of a labyrinth, you walk slowly while quieting your mind and focusing on a spiritual question or prayer.
A labyrinth is not a maze. It has no blind alleys or dead ends as mazes have. It is unicursal (one line), meaning there is only one path to the center and back out, this allows your mind to focus on meditation or prayer. Meditatively walking a labyrinth can be surprisingly calming and clarifying for your thoughts. Using this time to reflect on life may offer peace or new insights.
