Schedule of Labyrinth Events (TBA)

A labyrinth walk is very simple. There is no right or wrong way to walk. Every labyrinth walk is different. 

"You just begin, and the doing teaches what you need to know."  ~ Barbara Brown Taylor

This unique ministry offers a point of entry where people of various faith traditions may come to our church campus to pray or meditate. It is an opportunity to pray together, as well as an opportunity for learning and discovery.


A labyrinth is a powerful tool for prayer and meditation used by early Christians as a way to symbolically journey to the Holy Land. Walking the singular, circuitous path to and from the center of the labyrinth has a calming and centering effect on the mind, body, and spirit            


Labyrinths have been used as a spiritual tool for prayer, worship, reflection, meditation, contemplation, celebration, and spiritual growth. They offer a sacred space to quiet the mind, recover balance in life, and encourage insight, self-reflection, innovation, and stress reduction.

Visit the St. John's Labyrinth

The St. John's Labyrinth can be accessed from the main campus entrance (GPS: use 9140 Frederick Rd). Once on campus, the Labyrinth will be on your left. While we encourage you to walk the Labyrinth at any time, if you visit during school hours, please come to the Church Office for a visitor's badge. Look for the kiosk near the "Garden Labyrinth" sign for current materials to assist you with your walk as well as upcoming event information. (Many thanks to parishioner Steve Davey for our beautiful, handcrafted kiosk!)

Mission Statement

The mission of St. John’s newest ministry, formed in September 2021, is to promote

the active use of our labyrinth as a spiritual tool for prayer, reflection, contemplation,

meditation, worship, celebration, and spiritual growth for our congregation and people

in the wider community. Four focus areas drive the efforts of the ministry team:

  • Ministry Leadership - promotes the labyrinth as a spiritual practice

  • Education - offers meaningful events for all age groups

  • Communication - connects the ministry vision with the community

  • Labyrinth Garden Team - ensures a serene and sacred space


Vision Statement

St. John’s Garden Labyrinth offers a serene sacred space for the congregation and for people in the wider community to have an experience of prayerful walking, as a creative tool for healing and spiritual encounter.

Getting Involved

Labyrinth Ministry makes available the Labyrinth as a contemplative prayer walk in a

meditative setting. The Labyrinth Docents prepare the environment and are present to

answer questions and/or guide interested persons. They invite, welcome, give

overviews of ways to walk the Labyrinth, and answer any questions. Training is

provided for anyone interested in becoming a docent. Labyrinth guides occasionally

meet to continue to unfold this rich spiritual ministry for the community. Newcomers

are welcome; come join us! Those interested in learning more about docent training

may contact Teri Salmons and Lucia Martin at
