On the hillside a short walk up from Eastern Mennonite Seminary, people of all ages and walks of life may soon be seen walking in quiet circles.

A stone labyrinth, now under construction, will facilitate students, faculty, conference attendees and visitors from the surrounding community who seek a setting for prayer and meditation.
