Labyrinth

Organ and Labyrinth

Organ and Labyrinth is a new and exciting event takes place every Tuesday at 6:00 p.m.  It began in May 1996.  It focuses equally on music performed on our fine pipe organ,  with occasional appearances of additional musicians.  Our labyrinth is a meditative tool, whereby one is invited to walk on a traceable path that is placed on the floor of our sanctuary, while listening to music.  The contemplative aspect of the experience is heightened by subdued lighting, much use of candles, and a variety of performed music, ranging from classical Baroque to vintage rock tunes.  This program has elicited an enthusiastic letter to the Times Picayune and was recently the subject of a journalism project at TulaneUniversity.  If you would like to know more, call organist Albinas or Manon Prizgintas at 670-2520

 

 

 

The labyrinth is an ancient pattern used as a walking tool.

The labyrinth at Trinity Church replicates the labyrinth found in The Cathedral in Chartres, France. Its pattern mirrors our spiritual lives with a singular path, many turns and a clear center.  It is portable and can be adapted for many groups and events. All are invited to come and walk the Trinity labyrinth.

Mission Statement, Trinity Labyrinth Ministry: 
The Trinity Labyrinth Ministry is committed to introducing the labyrinth, a path of prayer which had been lying dormant for centuries. The labyrinth's transforming qualities bring spiritual insight, guidance and inspiration. The Trinity Labyrinth Ministry offers this sacred space to all who seek it.

"To enter the labyrinth is to choose to walk a sacred path."  --Dr. Lauren Artress

Above is a version of the Labyrinth. Use your finger or cursor to "walk" the labyrinth, or simply meditate on the image.
