A pilgrimage is a powerful way to enter more deeply into one’s own spiritual path, and in the context of a supportive spiritual community. This is a chance for you to give thanks for the sacredness of water, to experience the spiritual occurrences within the outdoors, to offer a time for introspection, and to be in community with other like-minded individuals. Our communities and our world need people who understand the depth of our interdependence with nature and with God. The River of Life Pilgrimage is one direct way we can deepen this awareness in our lives and in our communities. We are also raising awareness of the conservation efforts along the Connecticut River – one of New England’s most valuable ecosystems. From the mouth of the river to its source, pray with the pilgrims and with the Church.
