On Saturday, April 2, Fr. Marcus Shammami and Fr. John Jaddou led a group of hikers to Saugatuck, Michigan for the annual lenten hike. The day began with Holy Mass at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Douglas, Michigan, before heading to the Saugatuck State Park for a 3-5 mile hike along Lake Michigan. During the hike, walkers prayed together and also spent time in silence.

Thank you to everyone who attended! We look forward to our next hiking trip. 🙏

“We can pray perfectly when we are out in the mountains or on a lake and we feel at one with nature. Nature speaks for us or rather speaks to us. We pray perfectly.” -Pope John Paul ||
