The community is invited to a free labyrinth presentation at 11 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 26, at St. Catherine’s Episcopal Church. The labyrinth is a spiritual practice that invites visitors to walk a sacred path looking for focus at its center. The labyrinth walk works for people across a wide range of spiritual backgrounds.
The labyrinth floor used at St. Catherine’s will be borrowed from Grace Episcopal Church in Astoria. Karin Temple, who coordinates the labyrinth ministry at Grace, will speak about the labyrinth as a spiritual practice and how it has been incorporated into their congregation and wider community.
The labyrinth will be available for walking after the presentation until 3 p.m., at the 6 p.m. Spanish-English bilingual service that evening, and from 1 to 3 p.m. and 5 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 1.
St. Catherine’s is embarking on a project to build an outdoor labyrinth envisioned for use by both the church and the wider community. People are welcome to come learn about the labyrinth and help discern the level of support for this project.
St. Catherine’s Episcopal Church is located at 36335 Highway 101 in Nehalem (between Hope Chest Thrift Shop and Bunkhouse Restaurant). For more information, questions or to get involved in the outdoor labyrinth project at St. Catherine’s, contact Molly Oliver at 503-314-7318, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
