Outdoor Nature Walk Service – Ignatius Jesuit Centre
May 28, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Spring is a great time to immerse ourselves in the joys of nature, the mysteries of
migrating birds, ephemeral spring wildflowers, and animals emerging to the abundance of
spring. Guelph is especially blessed with the 600-acre Ignatius Jesuit Centre of farmland and
forests, with seemingly endless hiking trails open to the public.
Ignatius also has the spiral Stations of the Cosmos, Stations of World Religions, and the
Labyrinth, that seem almost designed specifically for Unitarians! Come commune with nature
and the cosmos with Paul Smith and Andrea Scapinello.
We will have a mobile service outdoors combining some usual elements of a service with a stroll
through the Stations of the Cosmos, and a leisurely nature walk to explore some of the farm
ecosystems, and whatever plants and wildlife reveal themselves.
Weather permitting, please join us at the Ignatius Farm Workshop parking area and Stations of
the Cosmos at 11am. See map for directions.
Note from Igantius: Please note that parking may be a challenge this weekend with all of the community gardeners. Parking on roadways is strictly prohibited, so if the farm workshop parking lot is full, the parking lots at Orchard Park (the big brick building when you first come in) would likely be your best bet.
