The Andover Townsman
---- — Boy Scout Raymond Gorzela of Troop 77 in Andover wanted to do something different for his Eagle Scout project.
After watching many fellow Scouts complete bridges as their service project, he opted to construct a meditative labyrinth for St. Paul’s Church at 390 Main St. in North Andover instead.
The meditative labyrinth, which is open to the public, offers a fluid path for people to walk along as they ponder and reflect.
Gorzela selected a seven-circuit design that’s 32 feet in diameter, with the labyrinth encompassing 800 square feet.
The project required 460, 12-inch edgers, 8 yards of stone dust and 3 yards of sand to complete.
A total of 86 volunteer hours went into bringing the labyrinth to fruition.
