Lenten Pilgrimage

A 4 Week Course of Pilgrimage

This event has been postponed until further notice

Monday, March 23 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Lenten Pilgrimage

You are invited to join us in a 4 week class on pilgrimage during this Lenten season. We will consider some history, practices and intentions of pilgrimages from earliest times, and the importance of Pilgrimage as a discipline and means to growing more deeply in touch with God and ourselves as a child of God.

Each week we will explore some themes and lessons from different places of traditional pilgrimage; the Holy Land, Ancient Greece in the footsteps of St. Paul, The Camino de Santiago de Compostella – The Way of St. James in Spain, and Celtic Christian pilgrim paths. We will have the opportunity to experience some practices of pilgrimage in class each week, and at the end of the 4 weeks have the opportunity to embark on a short local pilgrimage experience as we approach Holy Week.
