The Sacred Garden at Avondale.

The Garden.


The garden is an invitation to leave behind the distractions of daily life and encounter the mystery of God’s love and forgiveness. Walk the path to the cross at the top of the hill as a way to reflect on God’s presence in your life or take a seat and listen to the wind chimes. 

The Labyrinth.

The labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool. It’s not a maze with dead ends, but one path that loops back on itself and moves around the labyrinth’s center. It’s a symbol of our faith journey. Sometimes we feel closer to God, other times we feel distant. Walking the labyrinth quiets the mind and helps turn our attention to God. 

The Columbarium.

The columbarium is at the center of the garden. It commemorates the lives of those who have taken leave of this earthly life and provides a resting place for their ashes. The wind chimes in the garden are engraved with some of these names.
