Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to do some meaningful volunteer work in 2019?
Do you like to be of service to people?
Why not consider volunteering at St. Paul’s Labyrinth in the West End?
The labyrinth at St. Paul’s Anglican Church is a walking meditation space. Based on the medieval floor pattern at Chartres Cathedral in France, it features a singular path in to the centre of the space and back out again. The ancient rite of walking a labyrinth can be a way to quiet the mind, find balance and encourage reflection.
We are looking for volunteers to host this quiet, contemplative space.
• oversee the labyrinth and “hold” the space for walkers.
• welcome people, answer questions and provide information.
• help to organize things and generally make things happen.
Volunteering is easy and you can make a meaningful contribution with just a few hours a month. No experience required.
Our volunteers all receive training and orientation to make sure they feel confident in their role.
We are looking for volunteers to host the space for 2 hour shifts on weekend mornings, 1 hour shifts weekday mornings, two candle-lit Friday evenings, which include live music, New Year’s Eve and Day and other events.
We’re also open to volunteer help in other areas.
Please contact us with any inquires or to volunteer.
