The labyrinth was carefully laid out and lovingly and prayerfully built by volunteers from the congregation. Many of the bricks are inscribed with remembrances of loved ones who have died and with thanksgivings for God’s blessings in our lives.

We use the labyrinth to make a spiritual journey; a journey towards God, a journey of contemplation of the Divine. There is a plan for a bench for quiet contemplation and a prayer walk through the grounds. The deacon and members of the Prayer Chain, holding lighted candles, processed out the door to surround the labyrinth. 

The Blessing, given by Bishop, The Right Rev. Anna Greenwood-Lee 

You are blessed, Holy God, for you have put into our hearts a longing to draw near to you. We give you thanks for this place of journey where we can be near to you in prayer and action. We give you thanks for the faithfulness of the people of this parish in contribution to this project and in in prayerful work to build it. We pray for those who are remembered here. May this labyrinth be a place of blessing for all who use it as they contemplate their life’s journeys.
