New 'Pop-Up Pilgrimage' Planned
Join David Suwalsky, S.J., and Terrence Dempsey, S.J., for a special, brief pilgrimage journey to encounter SLU's vibrant spiritual and historic heritage.
Historically, a pilgrimage required of a believer to journey to a holy site, often under rigorous conditions.
Famous pilgrimage routes include the road to Santiago de Compostela, the burial site of St. James the Apostle, Canturbury, in England, and journeys to Chartres Cathedral in France or sites in the Holy Land.
SLU pilgrimages, while a bit closer to home, are opportunities for the University community to "share with one another our experience of God and goodness with sensitivity and in a spirit of mutual understanding," according to Suwalsky.
