Our purpose is to encourage, support, and engage people in spiritual pilgrimage around the world.
We are a response to the directive by Jesus Christ,
“Love God above all things” and, just as important, “Love your neighbor as yourself”.
As pilgrims, we serve this message by walking village to village through the world, to meet others and build trust which is the foundation of peace. Simply showing up to say, “Hello neighbor, peace be with you” Nothing more, nothing less and then walking along to the next town in the morning.
Upcoming Group Pilgrimages:
If you would like to learn more about and possibly join the Fall 2021 Shrine of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne pilgrimage click here.
While on any pilgrimage Ann is not on computer or text message so response times for any communications can take up to a few months.
The function of this website is largely informational, run by volunteers, and designed for the following:
- Those in conversation about pilgrimage,
- Those with ideas about their own pilgrimage who would like to reach out to Ann, not as tour guide but as pilgrim mentor or,
- Those wanting to join pre-planned pilgrimages. We are not a business and all of our pre-planned pilgrimages are in the line of service. Ann is a guide for them in a unique way and considers this one of her 4 Pillars of Pilgrim Life.
For those that want to help or support the Society, Ann, or other pilgrims please reach out to us and let us know what resource you have to tap into. We particularly are in need of international air miles and gear, like boots. Note that this email address is run by volunteers and response time is slow.
We also suggest subscribing to our newsletter below where we send a yearly series of narratives or glimpses into pilgrim life.
