This website
is designed to educate,
and inspire
those interested
experiencing and loving God.

My passion for praying,
and the sacred possibilities of labyrinth praying,
led me to create this site.

I pray that the time you spend here
will lead you towards God's profound love for you
and help you serve others more authentically.

Jill Preaching Heal Africa

As a contemplative artist and minister,
I serve Christ through creatively inspiring and encouraging others
to seek a deeper relationship with God and a more meaningful life of service.

In 2015 I celebrated the thirty-first anniversary of my ordination.

Jill Writing

My first seven books focused on labyrinth praying.
I enjoy presenting on labyrint-related topics, writing articles, and manuscripts that also relate to the Chartres Cathedral and pilgrimage.
I am currently finishing, Beautiful Praying: Nature's Invocations,
an inspirational book of photographs, devotional thoughts, and prayers.
"What Was I Thinking?," a memoir of my family's 38 day walk
on the Spanish Camino, will be published in the future.

Other recent ministry-related presentations can be viewed here.

Mary East Window Chartres

While spending three to four months a year in Chartres, France
I continue to think and pray about how to make the cathedral more accessible
to the multitudes of pilgrims who come to pray there.

My current research, writing and photography projects relate to
Mary as she is understood through sculpture, glass, and devotion at Chartres,
the cathedral labyrinth which was laid in the floor in the thirteenth century,
and the experience of praying at this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I lead personal, small group and large-group pilgrimages at the cathedral in English and French.
Contact Jill for more information about guided visits,
doing on-site spiritual direction,
leadership availability for your group,
or joining a group pilgrimage.

Creating images
in service of helping others to make significant connections with God
is a joy!
My photographs can be seen in books, magazines,
websites, and private collections.
Jill Chartres Cathedral Labyrinth France

My work as a Labyrinth Ambassador takes me to four continents.
I continue to say yes to opportunities
to introduce others to labyrinth prayer, publish my findings and stories,
to present on labyrinth-related topics at conferences and retreats,
and to build labyrinths.
Of course I walk and pray as many labyrinths as I can find,
and I photograph them all!
