To the north side of St. Thomas Chapel is our Episcopal Church Women Labyrinth and Memorial Garden, a peaceful place for meditation and prayer. Steady your breath, gentle your mind, and open your heart as you move about this sacred space. Studies have shown that walking a labyrinth in meditation can reduce heart rate and blood pressure, triggering a relaxation response throughout your body that can have ongoing benefits long after your meditation concludes.
This historic carpenter gothic chapel, once located in Safety Harbor, is now a centerpiece for DaySpring. The Diocese of Southwest Florida holds regular services there throughout the year. Visiting groups may use the chapel for small gatherings appropriate to the setting, or as a place of quiet individual reflection. St. Thomas Chapel is located adjacent to the Labyrinth, and the two areas are often used to assist people in their personal journey of meditation and healing.
In temperate weather, visitors hold services in our Outdoor Chapel. The stained glass windows are from the original Church of the Holy Spirit, Safety Harbor, built in 1914.
To the west of the Outdoor Chapel situated along our wetlands are the outdoor Stations of the Cross, where visitors can pray and reflect on Christ’s sacrifice for all of us.
