St. Andrew’s provides a place for us to encounter the Holy Spirit through meeting with each other, through our involvement with the natural world as a part of creation, and through communication with the mystery of the Holy Spirit that informs our life.

The Labyrinth at St. Andrew’s

Our labyrinth obtained a name this year: Fàilte, Gaelic for “Welcome.”  All are welcome to our labyrinth. Even though we couldn’t participate in Labyrinth events at church using our lovely Fàilte labyrinth, we did have an active labyrinth group all year. Our first zoom event in 2020 went from an in-person Lenten Walk to a Zoom Finger Labyrinth walk on 3/28/20.

Over the course of this past year Donna Hawkins has held 51 Labyrinth Walks, most of them on Zoom using our finger labyrinths.  We have had a total of 283 people participating in these offerings. For our weekly classes we have a core group of 4 – 6 participants.

Offerings included:

Weekly in-person walks (before March 2020), and then weekly virtual finger labyrinth walks, for any parishioner who wished to join

Finger labyrinth walks in tandem with the Advent and Epiphany Bible study virtual gatherings

A labyrinth presentation to the Centering Prayer group

A labyrinth presentation to a group from Ballard: Landmark Community (In-Person, Jan 2020)

A labyrinth presentation at one of the Enhancing Prayer classes.

St. Andrews weekly Finger Labyrinth Walks are continuing in 2021 every Thursday at 2 pm.  This is a fabulous way to relieve the stresses that are occurring during our stay at home time.  It has been rewarding providing these walks to our parishioners and people from the surrounding community. Come join us!
