Dominican Priests To Make Pilgrimage From New Orleans to Memphis

Inspired by the movie “The Way,” two Dominican priests plan to make a walking pilgrimage from New Orleans to Memphis starting May 29th. They will wear their Dominican habits, and carry no money or cell phones during the 30 day journey.

The friars plan to rely upon the generosity of fellow travelers, local churches and others as they make the 478 mile trip. Anyone interested in walking with them is welcome to join them, and those interested in following from a distance can follow them at friarsonfoot.wordpress.com.
