  • Lenten Labyrinth Walk

    Sunday, March 17


    Begin your Lenten pilgrimage this year with a journey into the labyrinth. A labyrinth is a walking meditation that represents an individual’s journey through the world in search of God. One of the oldest symbols known to humankind, the labyrinth is an ancient geometric shape that does not occur in nature, but that has  existed since at least 440 BCE. In Medieval Europe, walking a cathedral labyrinth became a substitute for a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, a long and arduous journey that not everyone could make. All youth in  grades 4-12 are invited to join the Junior Youth Group and the Youth Confirmation class in a labyrinth walk from 10:10-10:50am on Sunday, March 17. Adults and families are invited to participate following the 11am service. Come and see where your journey will take you!

    Socks for Souls Lenten Collection

    Make someone else's Lenten pilgrimage a little bit easier this year by donating socks to make sock giveaway bags for those who attend the Maundy Thursday Foot Care Clinic. This Holy Week, the ASU Community Nursing program and members of Episcopal congregations from around the diocese will take the foot-washing out of the church and into the streets to wash and care for the feet of those who are experiencing homelessness in downtown Phoenix. Please place your package of new black or white men's or women's socks in the red collection bins in the Narthex/lobby between March 10 and April 7. For more information, or to volunteer for the Foot Care Clinic, contact Pastor Emilie Finn at efinn@allsaintsoncentral.org.
