Labyrinth Walk at Washington National Cathedral on August 28
On Tuesday, August 28, a group from St. Paul’s, Ivy will journey to Washington National Cathedral for the evening labyrinth walk and service of Compline. Accompanied by music, the labyrinth walk is a contemplative walking experience with people of various nationalities, leaving one with the feeling of walking with the world. A silent labyrinth walk is also offered in the St. Joseph Chapel, and Compline is held at 8:15 p.m. Our group plans to be present in the Cathedral from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. We will travel together from St. Paul’s Ivy at 1:00 p.m., and plan to eat an early dinner at a nearby Washington restaurant in order to be ready for the programs. We will return to St. Paul’s at about 11:00 p.m.
The labyrinths at Washington National Cathedral are canvas replicas of the labyrinth on the floor at Chartres Cathedral in France. As one walks the labyrinth with others, proceeding closer to the center for rest, prayer, or meditation, one may feel the peace of the Lord.
