Walk The Labyrinth

Join The Rev. Diana Rogers on Saturday, July 8th at 9am for Good Shepherd’s monthly Walk- the-Labyrinth series.  The great pavement labyrinths first appeared in cathedrals like Chartres and Amien in the 12th through 14th centuries.  Used for spiritual meditation and contemplation, walking the labyrinth has been a spiritual exercise for centuries.  Come learn more about this enduring spiritual practice.  Meet at the labyrinth on the south side of the church off Pryde Drive at 9am.

The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd is located on 680 Racebrook Road, Orange, Connecticut.  Sunday service times include Rite II Holy Eucharist without music at 8 a.m. and Rite II Holy Eucharist with music @ 10 a.m.  For more information about  The Church of the Good Shepherd’s many other programs, please call the Parish Office @ (203) 795-6577, email us @, visit our website @, and, of course, check our Facebook page frequent postings.
