Pilgrim Ways

From:7:30pm Wednesday 17th July 2024

To:9:00pm Wednesday 17th July July 2024

The monthly Pilgrim Ways evenings reflect on different aspects of pilgrimage.

  • Do you think of your life as a journey?
  • Would you like to reflect on your Camino experience?
  • Do you find the Camino has some meaning for you?
  • How might walking make you wise?

The Irish pilgrim paths and the Camino have timeless meaning and speak to thousands every year. We invite seasoned and prospective walkers to come along on the third Thursday night of each month for some reflective time focused on the experience of or in anticipation of pilgrimage. 

Each evening will focus on an aspect of pilgrimage – perhaps referring to Ignatius of Loyola who refers to himself in his autobiography as “the Pilgrim” - and invite participants to reflect on their own sense of being a pilgrim.

The gatherings will involve some input, quiet time and conversation and prayer. You may know of upcoming walks or want to share trail discoveries. Where walkers gather there’s sure to be advice, recommendations and encouragement!
