The Metheringham Labyrinth

The Sisters at San Damiano, in partnership with the Diocese of Lincoln, have put a labyrinth in their garden. A labyrinth provides a path for a meditative walk. It can symbolise the ‘inner journey’ to the Centre, to God, and to stillness, and the ‘outward journey’, taking that centeredness with us into our daily activities. Unlike a maze, there are no dead ends and no possibility of getting lost, so long as one keeps one’s eyes on the path and doesn’t try to anticipate the turns in it.

The labyrinth at San Damiano will be dedicated by Bishop Christopher on Wednesday 28th May when there will a Eucharist in the chapel at 6.30pm, then the dedication of the labyrinth, followed by a ‘bring and share’ supper, with an opportunity also, to walk the labyrinth. If you live near enough to join us, you will be very welcome to attend – please let us know you intend to come, as our chapel isn’t terribly big.

After 28th May, the labyrinth will be available for walking every week, Wednesdays to Sundays, depending a bit on other events that may be happening in the house. It is situated in the grass by the turning circle in front of the house.
