About the Bishop’s Pilgrimage through the Archdeaconry of Moncton:
This is Bishop Edwards’ third-annual pilgrimage through an archdeaconry in the Diocese of Fredericton. His blog, entitled Come, Walk and Pray describes the two main elements of his walks: “to spend with God; [...] to meet people along the way.” The days of the pilgrimage are marked by services of Morning and Evening Prayer at the Bishop’s overnight stops, brief Midday prayers en route, and by time set aside for silent contemplation. Parishioners are welcome to join the pilgrimage for as much or as little as they would like, entering into a rhythm of activity, rest and prayer.
