Martin Methodist College will host a dedication ceremony on September 11th at 4 p.m. for the newly-constructed labyrinth and peace pole behind the campus’s Turner Center.

A hand-crafted monument, the peace pole is planted in the center of the newly-constructed labyrinth.

The project was funded by a grant from Interfaith Youth Core, a national non-profit organization working towards an America where people of different faiths, worldviews, and traditions can bridge differences and find common values to build a shared life together. The labyrinth and peace pole were constructed by Martin's staff, faculty, and students.

“The labyrinth serves as a focused path for all people to use for prayer, reflection, and meditation,” said Campus Chaplain Reverend Laura McMasters. “The students chose to plant a peace pole at the center of the labyrinth as we hope using the labyrinth will help center us to increase peace within ourselves and in our community.”
