A prayer path was also added. The path was created to represent a rosary: one white square paving stone, ten red stones, one white; in total, there were ten white stones, 100 red. The youth were invited to pray the garden path. All standing on the first white stone the children were asked to pray for people they knew, stepping on each red tile the children named aloud someone they knew; the next white stone the intention was made to reflect on places in the world that need God’s help, stepping on each red tile the children named aloud a country in the world; the next white stone was for creation, stepping on each red tile the children prayed for something in God’s world; the next white stone was for thanksgiving, stepping on each red stone the children offered a thank-you for something… and so on. The white tiles could be for any intention, while all the red stones are prayers for the item mentioned on the white tile.
Children learned to pray, adults found a peaceful place to sit and work, the neighbourhood would walk the path or follow it by eye from the street. Sanctuary was provided and sacred space shared.
