Part III: Labyrinth Final Product

By Mignon Dupepe and Cindy Fuller

The labyrinth at Kenilworth Union Church has only recently been created to commemorate the church’s 125th anniversary, but labyrinths have been known to the human race for more than four thousand years. Traditional designs evolved from the spiral forms of nature, and our labyrinth is shaped following a Baltic pattern. It is located in the small grassy space to the left of the covered walkway and protected by the bushes lining the front walkway. The location is ideal, as the space will be protected but also feel like a secret meditative garden. We welcome the support of the congregation to keep the path well cared-for and maintained in the future. We anticipate a dedication ceremony in September, weather permitting. As we get closer to the dedication, we will provide prayers that may be used following the labyrinth path.

Thank you to Bev Lang and the Building and Grounds Committee for all of their support in executing the labyrinth idea for the 125th celebration. We look forward to enjoying the path during the years ahead.
