About the Labyrinth

Designed by Randy Johnson with iconography by Loretta Hartmann, First Presbyterian’s Labyrinth is a five-circuit modified Chartres style.  Its unique square design with bump-outs allows the path to stretch a full 120 yards.  The “chapels” within each bump-out provide space for meditation and to allow walkers to easily pass each other.  The icons, inspired by the congregation’s collection of chrismons, represent different aspects of the Godhead.  The patterns along the inner circuit were inspired by Celtic crosses and ancient medieval tiles.
