Feast of Mary Magdalene Labyrinth Walk

Friday, July 21, 7:30 p.m.
in Norm Cram Hall

St. John’s Episcopal will host a Labyrinth Walk with live Taize music in honor of the Feast of Mary Magdalene. The purpose is twofold: to honor the Apostle to the Apostles and to spread awareness of the upcoming labyrinth project at St. John’s.

While an anonymous donor has given a sizable donation for the installation of a community labyrinth, there are additional costs for lighting and sound that need to be raised in order to complete this vision which will provide so many opportunities for education, consolation and spiritual nurturing for our community 

During this event, Kayleen Asbo will be offering a challenge grant of $2200 to match dollar-for-dollar every donation given to the labyrinth project that evening. 

Please help spread the word. 

This will also mark the foundation of a St. John’s Labyrinth Guild, whose purpose is to provide support for our community walks. If you would like to participate in the ceremonies that evening, we can use assistance in the following ways:

  • Set up of canvas labyrinth and candles
  • Set up and clean-up of dinner in the library
  • Hospitality and welcome
  • Clean-up of labyrinth
  • Collection of donations 
  • Tallying of donations
  • Distribution of flyers

Details of the evening are as follows:

6:00 - Arrive for set up of labyrinth in Norm Cram Hall

6:30  - Simple, light potluck dinner in library

7:15 - Clean up dinner

7:30  - Take places of welcome, light candles and offer blessing and intentions. Doors open for public.

8:00  - Labyrinth Walk begins

9:00-9:30  -  Anticipated ending of labyrinth walk

Thank you so much for your consideration of this ministry.
