Each Fall Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center typically hosts Shepherds Fest, an annual Fall open house. Since we are unable to hold the event in person this year, we thought we would host the event “virtually”. We will be doing this via a series of videos on and about Shepherd’s Corner!
Today is the kick off of our virtual Shepherds Fest week! We invite you to enjoy this introductory video about Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center.
Keep an eye on our Facebook and website because new videos will be released each day this week.
We kindly ask that you wear a mask when inside the barn or when near those who did not come with you. While you are walking the meditation trail or labyrinths we ask that you keep physically distant from those who are not with your group.
Tutors are needed for adults seeking basic education skills, GED preparation, or English as a Second Language. The Dominican Learning Center will hold its next tutor training workshop on Saturday, September 19th. Due to the pandemic, this training will be held on Zoom from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm.
Volunteers need to be be at least 18 years of age. Volunteers also should hold a high school diploma. Materials needed for tutoring are free to tutors.
The Season of Creation began September 1st and continues until October 4th. It is a time to be stewards of creation. It begins with World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation (September 1st)
and ends with the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi (October 4th).
It is a time to evaluate and reaffirm efforts to be stewards of creation. It is also a time to give thanks for creation as well as continue to work to protect creation.
Here is a PDF of this year’s guide.
Prayer & Movement

Walking, leaping, and praising God.
Fall Zen: September Labyrinth Walk
Tuesday, September 22 7:00 – 8:30 pm
Led by Donna Doone
Zen teaches that the gift of serenity and joy is available anytime, deep within ourselves. Our labyrinth walk will have us looking beyond the surface as we journey but with an “ inner eye to guide us”. Where you place your foot, there rests a blessing.
Our labyrinth is located on Wengert Road, at the second drive to the right.
Unfortunately this year we will not be hosting our Annual Shepherd’s Fest on September 26th as we had tentatively planned. Stay tuned as we hope to have some pop up virtual programs and activities celebrating Shepherd’s Corner! These programs will be posted to our social media and website so keep an eye out.
Please register by calling (614) 866-4302 or through our calendar, https://shepherdscorner.org/calendar. All onsite programs have a maximum of 10 participants unless otherwise noted.
Out of respect for each other’s health, we are wearing masks and practicing social distancing. We ask that you join us in this healthy practice when participating in our programs
Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center is an outreach of The Dominican Sisters of Peace.
