ISLAND ADVENTURES – LABYRINTH & CHRIST CHURCH TOUR – 25th February 2024

Labyrinth and Christ Church Tour

The labyrinth is located on one of the most historic, storied sites on St. Simons Island and under a canopy of old live oaks and other majestic trees draped with Spanish moss.  It is nestled between Christ Church and nearby Wesley United Methodist Church gardens.  Labyrinths have been around for centuries.  This large paved circle inset into the ground is adorned with lines marking a single passage that does not dead end, but instead is a single linear path that winds toward and away from the center of the circle. By paying attention to how one walks the labyrinth, one can learn something about how one lives their life.

Join us for a guided tour of the Labyrinth and a docent tour of the history of Christ Church.

EVENT DETAILS:

Sunday, February 25th, 2023 at 1:45pm.  Tour begins at 2pm.
