… an annual pilgrimage hike celebrating the newly-proclaimed Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church, on Monday June 10, 2019.
(This new Marian Memorial is always celebrated on the Monday after Pentecost Sunday.)
Who: You, and whoever else is led by the Holy Spirit to show up for this holy adventure. Spread the word!
What: 11-mile pilgrimage/Rosary hike on the Ice Age National Scenic Trail.
When and where: Monday June 10, 2019. Parking in, and leaving from, the Community Park parking lot in Slinger, WI (128 Kettle Moraine Drive, North, Slinger, WI 53086) at 8 a.m., with opening prayer in front of nearby St. Peter Catholic Church, hike starting there at 8:30 a.m. “rain or shine,” and finishing with a special 3 p.m. Memorial Mass at the Basilica of Holy Hill – National Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians (1525 Carmel Road, Hubertus 53033). Rev. Donald Brick, OCD will be celebrating, followed by the singing of the beautiful Divine Mercy Chaplet.
Why: To grow closer to our Lord Jesus Christ +, through His Church and the powerful intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, both His Mother and ours (… and to enjoy the good, prayerful company of your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ… and to receive a special prayer card designed just for this 2nd annual hike).
How to prepare: Wear weather-appropriate clothing and good hiking boots/shoes, and bring plenty of water and snacks for the journey. A small first aid kit and mosquito/tick repellent is advised just to be safe, and a convenient change of clothes for Mass is recommended too. Please RSVP to the email address or phone number below if you would like return transportation back to Slinger, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Please note: This hike can be strenuous at times, due to the hills, terrain and conditions on the Ice Age Trail.
