St. Thèrése Park

Memorial Garden and Labyrinth Prayer Walk

Our prayer garden is located adjacent to the upper church parking lot, near the north end of the parish center.

In memory of Sue Schowalter Kleva (June 20, 1941 - December 7, 1999), Marty Kleva, his family, and the Schowalter family have donated this wonderful sacred space. Marty, a landscape artist, designed the garden.

The labyrinth was an ancient way of walking in prayer - of "centering" oneself... in God... in Christ... of being on pilgrimage. There many patterns for the walk. Before you visit the garden, consider reading and printing this prayer sheet to bring with you.

Focus on God.

Bow as you enter this sacred space.
