July 16, Moonlight Walk at the Cathedral Labyrinth

Join us on a moonlight walk at The Cathedral Labyrinth. Experience the traditional walk on the carved granite path, guided by labyrinth volunteers.

As the sun sets, flameless candles will continue to illuminate the path. Chimes will be available for those who wish to use them.

Those who wish to do so may dip their feet in the fountain pool at the base of the Orpheus Fountain before embarking upon the path. The fountain is in the shape of a lyre and instrument the sound of which might tame the wild beast within those who walk the labyrinth.
