Outdoor Labyrinth 2023
Taking a Deep Breath between Summer and Autumn
The Autumnal Equinox will occur September 23, 2023, at 1:50 am CST
Special thanks to Tim James and Helpers of the Knights of Columbus, South Milwaukee
for trimming and mowing the labyrinth for our use.
“There is a clarity about September. On clear days, the sun seems brighter, the sky
is more blue, the white clouds take on marvelous shapes; the moon is a wonderful apparition,
rising gold, cooling to silver; and the stars are so big..." -Faith Baldwin
Come welcome the transition of the season as September boasts the last bursts of Summer.
Take time for a deep breath as the approaching Fall air hints to the coming of cooler weather
and days when light leaves us earlier and earlier! Together, we will bid goodbye to the lazy crazy days
of SUMMER allowing this sojourn to envelop us with calm as we transition to the busy life of fall and winter.
