The St. Peter’s Labyrinth is the 8 circuit “Vision Quest” from Labyrinth Company in Kensington CT and based on the Chartres design.
The 13-ton “easy to install kit” presented a few challenges to our installers.
- Centering the kit within the concrete curbs and to the monolith stone that is slightly off center.
- Custom cutting and fitting brick pieces around the monolith and the perimeter.

Building the Labyrinth
The labyrinth project included landscaping between the Church and the Celebration Hall and incorporated a retention basin for rain water runoff from the Celebration Hall.
Due to the soil type and arid climate we decided to stabalize the labyrinth and walkways by using a concrete base and curb around all bricks and pavers.
The walkways to and into the labyrinth are lined with memorial bricks donated by parishners, family, friends, and neighbors.
The 9 foot monolith stone is unique to the labyrinth with 6 feet above ground and 3 feet embedded in concrete. Two videos of the stone placement are available on "THE MONOLITH" menu.
