You will be especially remembered in the prayers of the Sisters and of the people who are helped by Project Share.

The Labyrinth Project at Linwood
  The Labyrinth is an intricate circular pattern which one walks while meditating. Unlike a maze, a Labyrinth is a walking path that always leads to the center and out again. This ancient sacred symbol of unity and wholeness can be found in many cultures and religious traditions throughout the world.
   In our Catholic tradition during the Middle Ages in Europe, pilgrims who were not able to journey to Jerusalem walked the Labyrinth on a symbolic pilgrimage. One of the most well known Labyrinths is in Notre Dame Cathedral of Chartres in France. The Linwood Labyrinth design is based on the 11 circuit Chartres Labyrinth.
   The meandering pathway in the circle is a metaphor for the journey of life. The cross that bisects the circle can be seen as a symbol for Christ in the world. The sacred space of Labyrinths welcomes and embraces all.
