Holy Family Labyrinth
Completed Fall 2005

  1. The labyrinth is installed in the grassy area which borders the Parish Hall and Parking Lot.   Because this area is designated for future building expansion, the labyrinth is constructed of grass and brick pavers which can be moved to another location when the new building is erected.
  2. Sod forms the paths of the labyrinth, and paths are marked with brown pavers.  The entrance to the labyrinth is also marked with brick pavers.  (See dark area on drawing.)
  3. The paths are  4' wide and wheelchair accessible.
  4. To trace how walkers move through the labyrinth, start at number 1 on the drawing and follow the path until you reach the center of the labyrinth.   To exit the labyrinth, walkers may either retrace their steps and return to the entrance or take the direct outlet (illustrated by arrows below).
  5. To reduce maintenance of the labyrinth, the pavers are embedded in the soil in order to allow the labyrinth to be cut with the lawn tractor.
  6. Because the labyrinth is located in an area which is already under lights, it is possible for walkers to use the labyrinth at night.
  7. The labyrinth was funded by donations made in memory of Kathryn Floyd, a long-time Holy Family parishioner whose love, dedication, strength, perseverance, and spirituality best exemplified the spirit of Holy Family.
  8. The labyrinth was designed by George Porter Associates.   We greatly appreciate all of the time that George has donated for our Labyrinth project!
  9. Labyrinth Committee:  Ed Merritt, Laura Sorrells, George Porter, Diane Wells, Carolyn Wheeler, or Edie Parrott.
