• 2019 PILGRIMAGE •

May 30 - June 2

THIS PILGRIMAGE IS A 60 MILE TREK OVER 4 DAYS AND 3 NIGHTS.
WITH DAILY MASS AND OTHER TIMES FOR PRAYER AND REFLECTION.

Pilgrims walk during the day and camp at night.
The pilgrimage begins at Church of the Magdalen in Wichita
and ends with the Father Kapaun Day Mass at 11:00 am in Pilsen.

The first day is rigorous, covering around 22 miles, with the following three days slightly less so. The walk includes daily Mass and time for confessions.  Every 2-3 miles  of the walk we pause for Father Kapaun Stations: reflection on different aspects of Fr. Kapaun's life. Portions of the walk are dedicated to group rosaries and silence, while the rest is great time for discussion and meeting new people.

Pilgrims who are unable to walk all 4 days are welcome to join us on any particular morning.  A van will meet at the Church of the Magdalen to pick up new pilgrims each day.  Please sign up through the link (when available) and mark the days you plan to attend.

This pilgrimage is made possible by donations. We ask that pilgrims make a small donation to cover food, gas, and other needs, usually in the amount of $20 a pilgrim.

For more information, please contact Fr. Eric Weldon at 316-262-1821 or J.P. and Audrea Brunke at 620-545-7058.


NOT WALKING? YOU CAN STILL GET INVOLVED!
For those unable to walk or wanting to participate in another way, we are looking for volunteers to assist in many different capacities (food, transportation, camp, etc.)

Another way to participate is by joining us in a spiritual pilgrimage. Praying the Father Kapaun prayer each day for the pilgrims is greatly appreciated, as are fasting, rosaries, and Mass intentions. This pilgrimage is only made possible through prayerful support.
