BRIGHAM CITY -- The grounds of St. Michael's Episcopal Church, 589 S. 200 East, in Brigham City, now include a labyrinth and adjoining natural stone altar.

According to a news release from the church, the 20-foot-square labyrinth and altar provide a pleasant setting for the occasional outdoor service, and any congregation wishing to use this setting may contact St. Michael's.

The Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Utah, the Right Rev. Scott Hayashi, performed sanctification of the 2,500-pound quartzite altar on Mother's Day as a special event during his annual visit to St. Michael's.

The labyrinth is adjacent to a meditation garden constructed several years ago, which is also available to anyone in the community who would like to enjoy its peace and solitude.

From its beginning more than 50 years ago, St. Michael's has been committed to positive community action, the news release states.

"St. Michael's vision and plan includes offering assistance to the needs of individuals and of local service organizations and to making the facility as inviting as possible to help accommodate those needs," according to the release.
