More than 200 Gonzaga University students, Jesuits, faculty, staff, alumni, family and friends are expected to participate in the University’s 39th annual Pilgrimage to the historic Mission of the Sacred Heart in Cataldo, Idaho on Saturday, Sept. 20.
Participants will board buses at College Hall Circle at 7 a.m., Saturday and travel to North Idaho’s Enaville Resort where they will have breakfast before embarking on a 9-mile wilderness hike to the historic Mission of the Sacred Heart in Cataldo, Idaho’s oldest standing building and headquarters of the first Jesuit missionaries to the region.
A mid-afternoon break includes sack lunches provided by University Ministry. The retreat brings together students of all ages as well as representatives of all parts of the Gonzaga University community to hike together and pray that God will bless the Gonzaga University community in the coming school year. The journey ends with a celebration of the Eucharist at the Mission of the Sacred Heart. Participants are expected to return to campus by bus at approximately 5:30 p.m. Saturday.
The cost is $15. To register, visit Gonzaga’s office of University Ministry, located in the Crosby Student Center, Room 104, and fill out a registration form.
