Sat. Nov. 2-- Annual Pilgrimage to San Xavier Mission with crosses remembering those who have died along the Arizona border. St. Michael’s has had a small team of walkers almost every year for the 13-year history of the event.
Two ways to participate:

1) Assemble by 9 a.m., St. John’s Church, 12th Ave. and Ajo Rd., for the walk [about 8 miles, with rest stops and a support vehicle if you don’t want to walk all the way]. A great chance to meditate, just be outdoors in city and desert, or pray with your feet.
2) Meet us at San Xavier Mission around 1 p.m. for a brief ceremony with Franciscan friars and W:aak O’odham traditional singers. Offer walkers a ride back to their vehicles.
Just come, or sign up at the back of the church. Join us! The official start time is 8:30, but you should be fine if you arrive any time before 9 a.m., when we should depart.
