Pilgrimage on the Peninsula: Youth Creation Care Pilgrimage for Grades 9-12 (2018-2019 School Year)
August 4, 2019 - August 10, 2019$480
Let’s take in the beauty of God’s creation on our first-ever youth pilgrimage on the Olympic Discovery Trail. Teen pilgrims will start at Saint Mark’s Cathedral and then head west, hiking daily in the mornings; enjoying field-trips, boating and other activities in the afternoon; resting at “waystations” each night; and finally reaching the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Along the way we will hear inspirational stories about what teens and adults are doing to stem climate change. We are delighted that the former Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, The Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, will be joining us throughout. The Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, who also has a Ph.D. in Oceanography, will share her unique perspective as both a person of faith and a scientist. Begins at Saint Mark’s Cathedral, Seattle and ends on the Beach at La Push. $60 due at registration, $420 final payment due July 15; partial scholarships available).
