 Labyrinth  Labyrinth GHTC

Labyrinths date back thousands of years.  They became a part of the Christian tradition out of necessity.  Early Christians  made a vow to travel to the holy city of Jerusalem at least once in their life.  Over the centuries, this became more  difficult and complex, and so other practices began to emerge to enable Christians to honor their sacred commitment  to pilgrimage.  One of these was the labyrinth.  A labyrinth is not a maze; you cannot get lost.  There is one entrance  and a path that leads you to the center and then back out.  Our labyrinth is available for retreats and prayer days and  on holy days.  If you would like to schedule the labyrinth for an event please contact Carolyn Chilton or Dawn  McNamara.  We can also assist you with teaching about how to walk the labyrinth and plan your retreat.
