A Pilgrimage Day at Minjerribah (North Stradbroke) NEW DATE Saturday, 22 October 2022

Saturday 22 October 2022

As the Season of Creation draws to a close, join us for a Pilgrimage Day at Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island)

Join us as we renew our commitment to our Common Home on the tranquil beauty of the Island, known by the traditional owners of the land, the Quandamooke people, as Minjerribah.
Our pilgrimage day will include contemplative space for walking, deep listening, prayer, art and reflection, as we seek to renew our relationship with our Creator and all creation.

Make the day a spiritual and sensory experience, noticing your moments of wonder and awe, as you experience of the beauty of the ocean, lakes, and the natural vegetation of the Island. Such moments, invite a special connection with our inner selves and the mystery we call God.

As Anthony de Mello SJ writes,
Any route to God has to be a route toward silence. If you want to reach union with God someday, you must begin with silence.”

When: Saturday 22 October 2022, 8.30 am to 5 pm.

Meet: Your Retreat Guides, Min Wullems, Mary Robson, and Gill Stephens, at 8.30 am, 12 Emmett Drive, Cleveland (Toondah Harbour, ferry departure zone)

Bring: Your own lunch, snacks and water. Wear comfortable walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen and insect repellent, plus swimmers should you wish to swim.

Walks: There are easy walks, much of which is along boardwalks and around Brown Lake. However, there are quite a number of steps along the route and you will be free to enjoy the walk in its entirety or part thereof.

Cost : $90 per person which includes the ferry and mini-bus hire costs.

We have nine seats available on the mini-bus so booking is limited and essential.

All are welcome – do not let cost prevent you from participating – please call 1300 EXAMEN (1300 392 636). You are also invited to contribute financially towards the ongoing work of our not-for-profit ministry, at the checkout when booking. We are grateful for your generosity, which enables us to continue sharing the transformative experiences of Ignatian spirituality.
