Traditionally, a pilgrimage involves leaving the familiar and setting out to a place where two realities meet – either land and sky, or earth and water. To set forth itself is already a prayer – a desire for a theophany – a fresh and deeper encounter with God. This pilgrimage/retreat will take place on historic Mission Hill, in the company of Mary, Mother of God. Although little is written of Mary in the New Testament, her journey and role weaves its way throughout the bible, beginning in Genesis and ending in the Book of Revelation. You are invited to journey into a renewed relationship with Jesus by following in the footsteps of Mary.
