WHY ARE WE GOING ON A PILGRIMAGE?
Fr JC has developed a pilgrim path for parishioners at Little Flower. (Pastoral Letter - July 31, 2022)
Each event takes you on a spiritual journey, creating time to reflect on our faith, pray for our loved ones and grow closer to God. In the spirit of joy and celebration, the parish walks with her people, encouraging you to grow as disciples of Christ. Make every step of your journey here on earth count, join us!
WHAT IS A PILGRIMAGE EVENT AND WHY ARE THEY SPECIAL?
1) It is an intentional event to celebrate a Feast such as Saints and Souls in November or a Liturgical Season such as Advent or as an invitation to a targeted audience such as the Little Flower Café or Parent Café.
2) It is an engaging event that welcomes you into your Little Flower home with a musical, video, speaker component and refreshments.
3) It is exciting - We won’t dial it in and neither should you! We will have concerts, film festivals, picnics, field trips and more! We work hard to make each step on the pilgrimage lead you to want to take the next step!
The result will be transformational
ENCOUNTER CHRIST SO YOU MAY LIVE OUT THE FULLNESS OF GOD’S JOY!
WHY DO I NEED A PASSPORT?
The passport reminds you that your spiritual life is a journey. A literal religious pilgrimage involves going to a place. In the Christian tradition, pilgrims have journeyed to Jerusalem, Rome, and Santiago de Compostela. Our pilgrimages are for your soul. The main purpose on this journey is moving your soul closer to God rather than moving your body closer to a sacred place. Flip through your passport, look at your stamps and realize how far you have come!
