The Labyrinth at Lourdes
1100 W. Church St., Elmira, NY
Our labyrinth was a labor of love constructed by the Rustici family with monies collected from Our Lady of Lourdes Parish. It is an eleven-circuit stone and grass labyrinth patterned after the one in Chartres Cathedral in France. It is located next to Our Lady of Lourdes Church at 1100 West Church Street in Elmira, NY. Because of its outdoor location, it is open all year round, weather permitting. Come as you are, whenever you can, to walk and meditate! All are welcome.

The Labyrinth at Trinity Episcopal Church
Corner of N. Main and W. Church Sts., Elmira, NY
(W. First St. entrance)
Trinity Church’s indoor eleven-circuit labyrinth, modeled after the Labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France, was originally laid in rough format in 2001 for a District Episcopal Women’s Retreat. Following, it was used during Renaissance Festivals until in 2007 it was opened to the public as the lovely candlelit lavender and cream “Inner Peace Labyrinth” it is today. Over time relationships were forged with other labyrinth sites, resulting eventually in the Labyrinths of Chemung County partnership. The labyrinth is located in the lower level of the Parish Building and may be accessed from the W. First Street parking area. All are welcome.
