DATE & TIME
St Paul’s Historic Church & Tropical Gardens
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, “Historic Key West’s Church” with their Labyrinth Gardens will be your setting for this gathering. You will be in the shadow of the Historic Rectory, one of the few remaining antebellum homes on Key West. The labyrinth is an ancient Christian symbol and device reminiscent of the journey of life. This is the southernmost labyrinth in the country and its central design is a depiction of the Holy Trinity rondel stained glass in the sanctuary. This ties the gardens to the architectural beauty of the landmark sanctuary which will celebrate its centennial in 2019. The plants are mostly tropical and sub-tropical species. The setting is used by many guests and visitors to Key West who often say the word “sanctuary” to speak of the feeling most of them have simply coming through the gates of St. Paul’s Church.
