Find refuge and step away from your routine on a pilgrimage experience along the Mississippi River. Explore a way of being that supports listening and letting go. We depart from Mason City on Wednesday morning, May 8, and return late afternoon on Friday, May 10. We will walk approximately 28 miles from La Crosse, WI, to Winona, MN, over three days on the Great River State Trail and Flyway Trail. Overnight accommodations include the Franciscan Spirituality Center (FSC) in La Crosse, WI, and the Alverna Center in Winona, MN. Private spiritual direction is available for an additional fee at the FSC. The Reverend Stephen Benitz of St. John’s Episcopal Church and Becky Elsbernd, Parish Nurse of Trinity Lutheran Church, will guide us on our pilgrimage. A support vehicle travels with us to assist as needed and to provide snacks and water along the way. Cost: $300 (this includes transportation, overnight accommodations, and meals.) Partial scholarships are available. Participants will be responsible for paying for their own celebratory lunch on Friday. Register and pay a $150 deposit to save your spot. Space is limited to nine people. The registration deadline is March 31.
