Pilgrimages to sites where Philippine and the first RSCJ lived and worked have been planned. Touching the land where they labored and lived and prayed is a sacred experience. We invite you to consider participating in one either before or after the Frontiers Conference.
There are three options available:
- July 17-18: Bus trip to Mound City, St. Mary’s, and Sugar Creek, Kansas.
- July 23-24: The same trip will be repeated.
- July 22 afternoon: A trip to St. Ferdinand in Florissant where Philippine and the first RSCJ opened a noviceship, a boarding school and a short lived school for the native Americans, and to St. Charles where the Shrine of St. Philippine is located.
