The labyrinth is a sacred symbol that has been used by many cultures and religions.  Labyrinths have been found at ancient sites throughout the world from Scandinavia to Mexico, Great Britain and India.  It’s believed that some are 3700 years old and the origins a mystery.  The origin of St. Luke’s labyrinth was 1999 when church members began working on plans for an outdoor labyrinth.  It was a way to reach out to the neighbors and offer a sacred space for the journey.  With a generous grant from the TKF Foundation the labyrinth was completed in 2001 and is open 24/7 for those who wish to see where their steps will take them on a holy path of discovery. 

 

Adjacent to the labyrinth is a playground for children dedicated on May 27, 2012.  The playground is another way St. Luke’s cares for the neighborhood and practices its love for children.  The playground is open during daylight hours and all children are welcome.
