The Labyrinth in Grand Terrace just celebrated its 20-year anniversary! It was created in 2003 solely through volunteer work and many donations. Each year, hundreds of people from the area walk the labyrinth on a regular basis.
A labyrinth is different from a maze as it only has one route to the center and back out again. It’s designed as a meditation walk to help reduce stress and look at life from a different angle.
"We are so grateful for those offering physical and financial help during our time of need," said Sister Joan Marie Sasse, Director of Sisters of Saint Benedict.
Over the weekend of August 19-20, the labyrinth was affected by Hurricane Hilary, a tropical storm that went through Southern California. The storm devastated the labyrinth and parking lot. "We are so grateful that the Guardian Angel at the entrance of the labyrinth was not damaged," said Sister Sasse.
For more information on the labyrinth and ways you can help, please visit www.JMSasse.org or their Facebook page, Labyrinth of Grand Terrace.
The labyrinth is open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days out of the year.
