On Our Grounds
Labyrinth & Healing Gardens
A labyrinth is a sacred symbol that can be traced back in history some 3,000 years to ancient Greece. It is a spiritual tool and signifies different things for different people. The labyrinth at St. Paul’s, spanning 40 feet in diameter made up of about ten thousand individual stones, is based on a labyrinth near Chartres Cathedral in France.
The labyrinth is open to all during daylight hours each day. Come with your care, concerns, thoughts, and joys, and experience it in whatever way you like.
To access the labyrinth, walk through the breezeway doors between the church building and the Warner Center, straight ahead as you come up the driveway from St. Paul’s Place.
St. Paul’s grounds are home to an historic churchyard where you’ll find examples of cemetery architecture from early colonial times through the 18th and 19th centuries. While burial of coffins is no longer permitted, we do have an area dedicated as an in-ground columbarium.
Found immediately to the left at the entrance to our grounds, the 9/11 Memorial at St. Paul’s was dedicated on September 11, 2011, the ten-year anniversary of the attacks.
The memorial is constructed from a piece of metal salvaged from the ruins of the World Trade Center in New York City. It serves as a reminder that, ultimately, love will conquer fear and hate.
Visit the prayer wall by the driveway at any time, and let us know what you are hoping, dreaming, and praying for using the chalk provided.
