Labyrinth Bonaventure now open
~ Come and See!

Our 11-circuit Chartes style Labyrinth is located in a lovely, quiet, outdoor setting conducive to meditation and reflection. Walking a Labyrinth can lead to inner stillness; and a means to open ourselves to God’s presence. The path of the Labyrinth is a metaphor for the path of our life and situations confronting us. Instruction sheets are available at the entrance. Labyrinth Team Facilitators are available to lead walks with a reservation. While the Labyrinth is open for all to use, we suggest groups call ahead to the Center to confirm availability. Donations are used for maintenance of the Labyrinth.
