Pilgrimages offer an opportunity to step away from the busyness of life to pray, worship and reflect on your spiritual journey amid sacred spaces.

Group Pilgrimages at the Cathedral

Half Day Pilgrimage (3–4 hours)

Through conversation and contemplation, story and silence, your trained leader guides you in a morning or afternoon pilgrimage through the Cathedral’s grounds and building. Refresh yourself with a contemplative walk through the gardens. Reflect on the stories told in the Cathedral’s art and architecture. Deepen your prayer with spiritual practices you can incorporate into your daily life. Pilgrimage dates are open to groups of 10 or more and are scheduled throughout the year.

Pilgrimage Tour (1 hour)

Discover inspiring stories of faith and devotion highlighted in glass and stone, and be nourished on your own spiritual journey. No matter your religious tradition or background, enjoy this unique combination of story, silence, poetry, prayer and reflection. Open to groups of five or more.
