About the Event

We will start with Mass in a new day-chapel at St Cyril and Methodius then walk, pray, and sing along approximately five miles of forest preserve to arrive at St James Catholic Church, ending with prayer of thanksgiving, a b-y-o picnic in a historic cemetery (containing remains of some who were alive when Washington was president!), and a short presentation. The first and last church have long history. St James at Sag Bridge is the oldest Catholic Church in use in Illinois- with rumors that Fr Marquette stopped nearby to pray Mass while resting from his explorations of the New World. There will be much to be shared via the experience of a walking pilgrimage including stories about St James, about prayer, Catholic notions about the sacredness of the deceased, the history of Illinois, etc!

Transportation is on your own. Youth groups particularly welcome! Adult chaperones required. Please let us know if you have any questions or would like to do this on another date: 312-869-2286
