Prayer Labyrinth

​A labyrinth is as an ancient walking meditation. You can’t get lost in a labyrinth: it is not to be confused with a maze. A labyrinth is a single circular winding path along which you can walk, stop, rest, and experience presence. Today, many people walk along the labyrinth to meditate and to become quiet and relaxed. Walking a labyrinth slowly and carefully can help you to journey to your centre and to be prayerful and reflective. When you reach the centre of the labyrinth it is opportunity to sit and spend time with God.

Thanks to the hard work of Mr Dave Brown, St Pius V now has a beautiful labyrinth located on the school oval. This prayer space has been well over 12 months in the making and supports the Catholic Identity of our school. Going forward, I know it will be well utilised by students, teachers, parents and parishioners. I reminded the students yesterday that if they are on the oval they need to respect this as a prayer space, not a play space.

Again, my sincere thanks to Mr Brown for his work along with the many parents who came along on Saturday to our one and only working bee for 2020. We appreciate the assistance in finishing off the labyrinth and the many other jobs which were completed around the school. We could not have done this without you.
