For sojourners who desire greater personal and global transformation.

Pilgrimage is an ancient Christian practice that was largely lost through the centuries. At one time, it was common to make pilgrimage to places considered sacred and holy to Christians–Jerusalem, Rome and later Santiago and Assisi.

Historically, pilgrims would save up resources for years to embark on foot across many miles for many days. The journey could be quite treacherous. Driven by devotion, pilgrims would often risk their lives and at time lose their lives along the way.

The purpose of pilgrimage is to set apart a period of time to prayerfully devote ones whole self to God. Through the act of rising early and engaging in a physical journey, one devotes body, mind, and soul to God for purification. The act of moving from one point to the next provides a singular focus for pursuing God. So in essence, pilgrimage can be made most anywhere, to most any destination.
