THE LABYRINTH AT MERCY CENTER

LABYRINTH HISTORY

Fr. Thomas Hand, SJ, founder of the East-West Meditation program at Mercy Center, built the Mercy labyrinth in 1997 as a place for walking meditation. All the work was done by hand by a small group of volunteers under Fr. Hand’s direction. Fr. Hand chose the jagged central stone of serpentine as a reminder of the stone Jacob erected at the site of his dream of Heaven.
