The farther the outward journey takes you the the deeper the inward journey must be. ~Henri Nouwen
The Chapel and Religious Life Office prides itself on inviting students every fall and spring break on pilgrimage experiences. These pilgrimages are different than a traditional mission trip. While there is typically service and sharing of the Good News, these trips are as much an inward journey as an outward journey.
All participants must abide by the Pilgrimage Program Overview Expectations.
