Meditation in Movement: A Labyrinth walk and talk

Lucy TobiasJoin us for this special event!  The labyrinth at St. Boniface Church was one of the first labyrinths in Florida that author Lucy Tobias walked, and in part, became the inspiration for her new book, Circle the Center: Labyrinths in Florida. On Saturday, October 20 at 10:00 am, our refurbished labyrinth will be blessed, and Ms. Tobias will do a presentation on labyrinths as well as be available for book signing. There will be an opportunity to walk the labyrinth, and light refreshments will be served. The event will take place in the labyrinth courtyard and all are welcome to attend.

Pride Fest 2018
Join us at Pride Fest 2018!  We'll be in the booth with the familiar St. Boniface stained glass windows.  You’ll find us reaching out with Christ’s all-embracing love to the LGBT community in Sarasota.  We’ll have fun give-aways, face painting, clergy on hand for Q&A with festival attendees.  Saturday, October 20, 12:00 – 6:00 p.m., JD Hamel Park (downtown at Main St. & S. Gulfstream Ave.).
Conversational Spanish

Bienvenidos to all who would like to practice spoken Spanish in a relaxed setting with others.  There are no books, no tests, and no homework; we all just want to improve and refresh the ability that we have in the language and help one another in doing so.  The círculo meets on Wednesdays from 4:30—5:30 p.m. in the Library beginning October 3.
