    Please join us for the Renewal Center’s annual observance of World Labyrinth Day. We will be praying for peace in our communities and the world.

    May 6, Saturday
    11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

    Members of the First Baptist Church of Kansas City, Missouri, will be with us this year. Rev. Dr. Stephen Jones, pastor of First Baptist Church, will be our leader.

    We will begin the day in prayer and reflection on how we can wage peace in our families and faith communities, our schools and places of work, our neighborhoods and ultimately our world.

    We will share a simple lunch and then participate in the observance of World Labyrinth Day by taking steps for peace. We will “Walk as One at 1” joining others around the world in prayer and meditation as we walk the Reconciliation Labyrinth at Precious Blood Renewal Center and seek to create a wave of peace washing across all time zones.

    What is World Labyrinth Day

    World Labyrinth Day is celebrated every year on the first Saturday in May with the theme “Walking as One at 1.” An estimated 5,000 people in 35 countries will be walking labyrinths on May 6 at 1 p.m. local time, so for 24 hours the world will be engulfed in this “moving meditation for world peace.”

    Why walk a labyrinth?

    Labyrinths have been used for spiritual healing and prayer services for centuries. The circular paths are designed to encourage transformation and awakening as a person walks through and meditates, prays, or reflects. The transformation can be psychological, personal or spiritual.

    Why walk the labyrinth at Precious Blood Renewal Center?

    Our labyrinth is central to our mission, which is to foster reconciliation and renewal in society, to bring healing and hope to fractured people. Our Reconciliation Labyrinth was dedicated in August 2016 to commemorate the Year of Mercy declared by Pope Francis.
