Notre Dame College School’s 45th Annual Pilgrimage for the Developing World
October 13 @ 8:00 am - November 15 @ 5:00 pm
A pilgrimage is a walk to a holy place and for the last 44 years, Notre Dame students, staff and their families have given up a Sunday in late October to walk the Pilgrimage for the Developing World. Many things in our world have been affected by the Covid-19 Pandemic- our school day looks different, the way we shop, go to church, gather with friends and families have all changed and so our Pilgrimage will look a little different this year too.
Notre Dame College School’s 45th Annual Pilgrimage for the Developing World will take place from Oct 13 – November 15, 2020.
We will walk a total of 20 km over the next month, from October 15th to November 15, on our own time- you might choose to walk 1 km a day for 20 days, or to walk 5 km each week. While we will be walking separately, every step we take will still be in solidarity with our sisters and brothers in Peru, the Dominican Republic and across the global south. We will still raise money to support our partners: Development and Peace, Yancana Huasy and the DCCD, but this year we will collect those pledges through School Cash Online. We will still finish our Pilgrimage at our holy place- our Pilgrimage Mass and Candlelight Liturgy in Dillon Hall – however this year we will stream it in the comfort of our own homes on a new and later date, Sunday November 15th.
We will continue to walk, to raise money and offer our prayers of solidarity through our 45th Annual Pilgrimage, because as tough as the pandemic has been for all of us, it has been devastating for our sisters and brothers in the developing world. Our Pilgrimage has always been about healing our broken world, work that is vital in bringing about the Kingdom of God- a world where all people live in dignity and peace. We hope you join us in making our world a more just and equitable place for all by giving of your time, treasure and talent for the 45th Annual Pilgrimage for the Developing World.
