Labryinth Day is May 6
World Labyrinth Day is Saturday, May 6, with events celebrated locally 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church. People from all around the world will be walking labyrinths and praying for peace at 1 p.m.
The day will begin at 11 a.m. with chanting, singing and prayer, followed by a labyrinth walk, sharing, and chanting again as church members prepare the soil of St Augustine’s labyrinth garden for the Homer Community Food Bank.
Visiting for the event is Barbara Flaherty, co-founder of the Fourth Order of Francis and Clare and a student of Islam.
“As an Episcopalian who has lived in community with both Christians and Muslims, she brings a special grace and wisdom regarding the ways Christianity and Islam meet,” said Rev. Judith Lethin of St. Augustine’s.
