Walk through our Trinity Labyrinth

At this time many members of our community are self-isolating, in quarantine, or having to stay within their local community. Whether you are unable to visit our site in person, or you are choosing to stay at home for the safety of yourself and our community, the peace of God can offer solace for all pilgrims. We invite you to find rest and renewal in meeting the Creator, the Redeemer and the Spirit as you take a prayerful virtual walk through our Trinity Labyrinth with us.

On Care for our Common Home

Do you have a passion for caring for creation? Do you want to join a dialogue with other Christians and people of goodwill from across Canberra? Then please come along to our joint study course on Pope Francis’s encyclical on integral ecology, “Laudato Si”, run jointly with Holy Rosary Catholic and St Margaret’s Uniting Churches.

“Laudato Si” is one of the most significant and intellectually compelling studies of our current climate crisis, and has been widely acclaimed by Christian and secular commentators alike. It is available free online here: https://www.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/encyclicals/docume nts/papa-francesco_20150524_enciclica-laudato-si.html

The course is run fortnightly on Tuesdays 7.30pm, starting 10 August. All are welcome and there is no charge. To attend please book online at: https://www.trybooking.com/BSSOB.
