Exciting Opportunity to Embrace the Dominican Charism Amidst the Colorado Mountains
“TOWARD THE TOP 2022″
Ready to “unplug” and connect with God, Creation, and an intrepid crew of fellow pilgrims?
“Join us for three days of backpacking and two days of whitewater rafting in the exceptional Rocky Mountains. Guided by the wisdom of Dominican spirituality, we’ll encounter God through the wonders of Nature, worshipping our Creator with body, mind, and spirit. Each day will include opportunities for learning, prayer, reflection, and building friendships. Pilgrims will return home renewed by Grace for apostolic mission in the world.
This pilgrimage is physically demanding, but no previous experience with wilderness activities is required. All food and most gear is provided by our partner, COR Expeditions, and scholarships are available! We’re limited to 22 participants so reserve your spot today.”
Dates of the pilgrimage:
June 11-17, Buena Vista, Colorado
Leading the pilgrimage are:
Sr. Christin Tomy, O.P., and
Fr. Brian John Zuelke, O.P.
What to expect:
Daily Mass and Liturgy of the Hours, Confession available any time
Time for personal contemplation and reflection in the cathedral of the wilderness

Growth, leadership development, and self-discovery through the challenges of the wilderness
Taking time in the “back country” to discern God’s call for you when you return to the “front country”
Structured around the pillars of Dominican spirituality, the trip aims to help participants deepen their awareness of God’s call in their lives, and strengthen their capacity to live out the Gospel mission in the world.
