Good Friday, April 14: Good Friday Labyrinth Walk With Stations of the Cross in the Parish Hall at 3 pm. Our annual Good Friday walk features labyrinth banners displaying the Stations of the Cross with commentary by Rev. Anne Koehler and Dr. Margaret Rappaport, accompanied by sacred music selected by Darlene T. Hagon, Director of Music. Notably, the labyrinth walk will offer comfort crosses for participants to hold and a vessel of ashes for meditative focus. Join us for this meaningful Lenten walk. It is not necessary to walk the labyrinth. There is always the option to sit quietly in prayer and to meditate or to use a finger labyrinth if desired.
