St David's Labyrinth
We are all on the path...
exactly where we need to be.
The labyrinth is a model of that path.
A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools.
The labyrinth at St. David’s is located in an outdoor area bounded by the Sanctuary, the Mission Center and a privacy wall. It is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
