“Unplug” and Hike with Fr. Phil: Oct. 20-22
- Oct. 20: Friday will kick off our official “Unplug” weekend. We will be encouraged to unplug our devices and practice being “present” to God and to our surroundings. Guidelines for the weekend will be offered. Are you up for the challenge?
- Oct. 21: On Saturday morning, Father Phil will lead us on a moderate 3-mile hike at Mt. Wachusett in Princeton. Bring a physical item, a piece of poetry or prose, or a prayer that speaks to your connection to nature. We’ll stop along the way and you’ll be invited to share your item or reading and what it means to you. Dress appropriately for weather, wear sturdy shoes for hiking, bring insect/tick repellent, sunscreen, a snack or two and plenty of water. We will meet at St. Mark’s at 8am and depart from there, or you can meet us at the main parking area at Wachusett at 9:00am.
- Oct. 22: You won’t want to miss the church wide Potluck Supper, after which the LaBelle family will share photos, videos and reflections of their journey into wilderness spirituality. Sign up sheets for both the hike and the Potluck Supper will be available in the parish hall, or sign up online at this site.
