Youth and Young Adult Pilgrimage 2019 @ Glacier National Park
Jul 7 – Jul 16 all-day

Pilgrimages have been happening since before the time of Jesus. A pilgrimage is not just about what happened in the past; it is also about how God is calling you into the future. How are you called to be at work in the world? What are you called to do with your life?
