Early Thursday morning, a group of 55 young men and women gathered at St. Peter Cathedral to attend the Pentecost Pilgrimage. The retreat, based on the Ascension passage in Acts, is a four day pilgrimage up the coast of California lasting from Thursday, July 4 to Sunday July 7, 2013. The retreat begins in San Diego and concludes in San Francisco. There are a number of stops, including some of Californias most beautiful and historic Missions, Hearst Castle, Downtown Disney, as well as other destinations.
The Pentecost Pilgrimage is a vocations retreat. It is lead by Fr. Andrew Younan with the help of the Seminarians of Mar Abba the Great as well as the Sisters of the Workers of the Vineyard. Through the different talks, small groups and activities on the road, the group is reminded that this life is also a pilgrimage and that our final destination should be with God. We pray that the youth of this pilgrimage may have a spiritually fulfilling experience and come back to San Diego refreshed.
