Sisters to host ‘Walking the Labyrinth’

Join the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, and others for the upcoming program “Walking the Labyrinth,” scheduled for 1:30-3:30 p.m., on Sunday, Oct. 16.

Join facilitator Sister Paula Damiano, SP, as she explains the experiences of walking a labyrinth and how its purpose is singular with no end. A labyrinth has a center and is similar to all persons seeking God

Labyrinths have been used for meditation and prayer and are also tools for inward journeys and self-reflection.

“Persons can think of labyrinths as symbolic of a pilgrimage,” Sister Paula said. “Sometimes, they are used for prayer, meditation, or contemplation since the silent walking helps to quiet the mind. Those attending the workshop will learn about the history of the labyrinth and how it can lead one to prayer.”

Those attending are asked to meet in the Havlik Center at Providence Hall and wear comfortable shoes.

Cost is $20 per person, which includes materials and refreshments. The registration deadline is Oct. 13.

Register online here or by calling 812-535-2952 or emailing provctr@spsmw.org.
