“Solvitur ambulando…” It is solved by walking… –Saint Augustine
Our outdoor labyrinth, located in the courtyard adjacent to Holy Trinity's main sanctuary building, is available every day from dawn until dusk, inviting pilgrims to experience God through this ancient symbol. Walking the labyrinth alone or in a guided group, you will experience a body prayer and form of meditation that will quiet your mind and allow your spirit to become more receptive to the still, small voice of God.
Coordinated by Libby Haile & Barbara Cromheecke
Location: Smyth Library, Holy Trinity Episcopal Church
First Monday of each month, 4:30–5:30 p.m.
The Labyrinth Keepers are an ecumenical group dedicated to providing education and opportunities for people to experience transformation through walking the labyrinth. We plan walks, advertise, train, and provide facilitators for a variety of community-wide labyrinth offerings. We welcome new members.
