The St. David’s Way walk just last month was an example of the type of local mini-pilgrimage that the MSSJ hopes will begin to spring up in all areas, in addition to the annual mega pilgrimage (Switzerland on the Via Francigena in 2016). BCC and the Mormon Society of St. James would like to invite all who are interested to participate in another local mini-pilgrimage this Saturday, July 25, 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah. We will be hiking from the Salt Lake Temple (depart from the temple at 7:00 a.m.) to the summit of Ensign Peak to commemorate Pioneer Day. At 2.3 miles each direction, the hike (http://tinyurl.com/nzssvej) is perfect for families with kids. We hope to see you there!

Mormon Society of St. James hosted a local “mini-pilgrimage” in Utah, hiking the last section of the Dominguez-Escalante trail, ending at the commemorative cross in Spanish Fork canyon, the farthest point north that the Spanish company ventured in 1776.
