Join us for Outdoor Labyrinth Walks

All are welcome to join us for labyrinth community walks on Sundays at 1:00 p.m. CDT weather permitting.

St. Margaret’s and Arkansas House of Prayer are offering community labyrinth walks on Sundays.

We will continue to meet all summer on Sundays except for Sunday May 23, May 30 and July 4, in observance of St. Margaret’s picnic, Memorial Day and 4th of July.

The Rev. Cindy Fribourgh or Sister Deborah Troillett, RSM will lead a short meditation in the patio area in front of the House of Prayer. Participants may then take the short path through the woods to walk the outdoor labyrinth. Handheld labyrinths will be available for those for whom the path is difficult.

No experience is needed. A short teaching will be offered about this ancient spiritual discipline for those who are not familiar with the labyrinth. The twists and turns of the labyrinth are representative of our spiritual journey, all of which lead to God, the center.

For information, email Cindy at or call/text 501-580-9066.

All are welcome to join us!
