All the important information can be found on the Young Adult Monastery Pilgrimage Facebook page.
(FB) - Let's get together for a fun, enriching, and spiritually beneficial road trip/pilgrimage from Northeast PA to Upstate NY! We're trying to get a sense of numbers, and of how many people may be interested.
As a pilgrimage, there will be important and heartfelt conversations with spiritual mentors, quiet moments of prayer, and peaceful contemplation at 4 beautiful American monasteries. As a service trip, there will be a lot of hard work to help out at the monasteries we will visit. And like any good summer road trip, there will be fun times on the road, frisbee and soccer wherever there is grass, and bonfires and music during the cool summer nights.
