Journey to Jerusalem – in Lent

…If you are interested with we be taking a Journey to Jerusalem.

This 6 week walking program will encourage you to be more physically active and promote spiritual growth through scripture readings.  God wants us to be well and whole.  This is a VIRTUAL journey with faith and movement.  This is open to anyone, any age, and any ability!

Here’s how it will work:

Walk alone or with friends from Ash Wednesday through Palm Sunday (indoor or outdoor & doesn’t have to be at our gym to count.  You can walk anywhere).  Pray the Rosary, talk to God, and log your miles. On Sundays, email me your number of miles walked and total miles prayed for the week. (20 minutes of prayer or exercise = 1 mile, 2000 steps = 1 mile).

If you are unable to physically walk you can spiritually walk with us in prayer.  1 mile credit is given for every 20 minutes in prayer.  Anytime you attend Mass, Stations of the Cross, adoration or confession – add 3 miles to your log.  Our goal is to collectively walk 5980 miles it would take from Troy to Jerusalem.  We could travel from the Atlantic Ocean through Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and Israel.  We will learn about different cultures, Saints and Christian landmarks.  We will walk from Ash Wednesday to March 25, 2018.  There will be weekly scripture and questions to ponder as we journey via emails on Mondays.

The first 50 people to sign up will receive free pedometers.  Let us grow and be Healthy in the Lord this Lent.  Sign up by email (*protected email*)  Kim.
