Walking a Labyrinth
Walking a labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tradition that invites each person’s quiet individual experience. There is no prescribed religious rite or activity. For some people the walk is a metaphoric pilgrimage. For others it provides peace, healing, or spiritual insight. Read more here.
Creation Care Stations of the Cross Hike
Friday, March 31, 9:00am – 11:00am
Starting from Upper Red Rock Loop and Chavez Ranch Rd. If you want to carpool, meet in the St. Andrew’s parking lot at 8:45am.
Walking the Via Crucis – the Stations of the Cross – is a reflective and prayerful way to observe Lent and Jesus’ journey to the cross.
The hike will be approximately 1 mile long, along a fairly smooth path that is rocky and hilly in some sections. We will stop along the way to observe the Stations of the Cross and to add our own prayers and reflections on our responsibilities and concerns for all of God’s creation. The hike will take approximately 2 hours.
We are looking for readers – volunteers who will read the short liturgy for one of the Stations, then add their own prayer for creation. Prayers might take the form of a scripture reading, a prayer you’ve written or read somewhere, a poem, a quote, a song, a picture – whatever you feel called upon to share.
Contact Peggy Connery for more information and to volunteer as a reader.
Wednesday Book Group: Sacred Earth Sacred Soul

Welcome to The Episcopal Church!
As Episcopalians, we are followers of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We strive to love our neighbors as ourselves and respect the dignity of every person.
The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, and traces its heritage to the beginnings of Christianity.
Our liturgy retains ancient structure and traditions, and is celebrated in many languages.
We welcome men and women, married or celibate, to be ordained as bishops, priests, and deacons.
We believe in amendment of life, the forgiveness of sin, and life everlasting.
Lay people exercise a vital role in the governance and ministry of our Church.
We uphold the Bible and worship with the Book of Common Prayer.
