St. Francis Youth Pilgrimages


"We always have a tendency to see those things that do not exist
and to be blind to the great lessons that are right there before our eyes."
~ Paulo Coelho, "The Pilgrimage"

Paulo Coelho's quote from "The Pilgrimage" is a reminder that sometimes we need to take a journey beyond what is safe and familiar in in order to see the world differently. Sometimes, unfamiliar glimpses of the beauty of this world are what bring a sense of awe and wonder. Sometimes, seeing how faith dwells in the lives of others invites a reexamination of God and self. A pilgrimage is to experience the geography, culture and history of a different place and people in such a way that we are invited into meaningful spiritual reflection.

Stay tuned for details on the next pilgrimage.
