Walk to Bethlehem 2016bethel

(Sponsored by Parish Nurses) Over 100 of our parishioners and our priests joined in our spiritual and physical fitness “Walk to Bethlehem” last year, and we collectively walked, ran, swam, biked, golfed and hula-hooped over 10,000 miles, the equivalent of all the way to Bethlehem and halfway back. Time to do it again! Sign-ups at both churches.  You’ll receive guidelines for participation and a packet of contemplative prayers to use during your exercise time. All you need to do is track the miles or minutes you exercise (any form of exercise that you prefer) and email your miles or minutes to bethlehem16@historicsaintpatrick.org.   There’s no minimum requirement; you can contribute as much or as little exercise time as you want. You can exercise by yourself or in a group. The purpose is to encourage each other to be physically and spiritually active and to be mindful of the presence of the Lord in our daily lives as we prepare to celebrate the Nativity of Jesus. Recording of exercise begins September 26 and end on December 12, the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  Call Rebecca at 309.829.1355 for more information.
