This charming labyrinth at St. Pius School in Cedar Rapids was a Girl Scout Silver Award project.

Tucked into the south courtyard at St. Pius School off Council and Collins is a charming rectangular five-circuit labyrinth.  Newly completed this autumn, this is a culmination of 14 months planning, over 650  hours by 62 volunteers, and $7,000 in donations to transform this area into a spiritual space.  According to the St. Pius X November 2012 newsletter, three Regis eighth graders organized the project for their Girl Scout Silver Award.  Pilgrims are asked to walk the labyrinth and enjoy the space outside school hours.  They can access the labyrinth by parking in the south lot, follow the entry drive back toward Council and turn up the walkway into the courtyard.  This is indeed an addition to the community.
