St. John’s First Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage

Last Saturday afternoon, April 8, 31 St. John the Evangelist “pilgrims” shared a hot lunch at Crispin’s Kitchen, prayed the first two Stations of the Cross in our church, were blessed on our way by Fr. Crispin, and headed for the bus stop at Greenwood and 85th.  We bused and walked to five more churches, praying two stations at each, on our way to St. James Cathedral, where we prayed the final two stations.  We visited Blessed Sacrament, St. Patrick, St. Joseph, Immaculate Conception, and St. Ignatius Chapel at Seattle University.  The oldest pilgrim was 92, the youngest was eight.  Four pilgrims took turns leading us in prayer; several joined us from other parishes.  Everyone found this mini-pilgrimage with like-minded Catholics to be a rich preparation for Holy Week.  St. John’s Cathedral Builders team hopes to repeat it next “Palm Saturday.” Save the date for   Saturday, March 24, 2018.
