Southeast Missions Walk

Lent 2018

SE Missions Walk


      During the Lenten Season we will be walking the Trails of the Southeast.  We would like everyone to join us, not only by walking, but also by sending in information about events you experienced along the route we will be taking.  

     We will begin our virtual walk at our Church, St. John Neumann and will head to North Charleston County to visit several places, starting with Murphy Island which  was once the site of a Spanish Mission!  From there we will head down the coast visiting sites along the coast such as Bull Island, Charleston, Johns Island, Edisto, to Paris Island and continue own along the coast.  There were several brief missions along the coast by Hilton Head and among the Georgia Sea Islands.  We will continue down the coast of Georgia to Jacksonville and continue down the entire east coast of Florida.  after a brief stop in the Keys to see if there are remnants of the Spanish fort built there.  Then we will head up the west coast visiting Cape Coral, Tampa Bay, Tarpoon Springs and up to Apalachicola.  From there we head north to Chattahobchee stopping to visit another mission area then roughly follow Rte. 10 east through Tallahassee and back east toward Jacksonville.  There are several mission sites around this highway and 4 very close by on the Georgia side to be explored.  Then we will head north along Rte. 1 up to Augusta and then follow Rte. 20 back to the Church.  

     I heard from some people that they really enjoyed the information the folks had sent in for last fall's walk and found it a good way to get to know fellow parishioners.  So, we want to continue this again, this time.  Since we are walking through our state and two others quite near, I am sure many of you have visited places along the planned walk.  Did you get married, go to school, make your first communion or experience any other major event at a place along this route?  Did you have a funny experience (I have one about fluff mud from our SC coast).  You do not have to limit your stories to just those about missions.  We would love to have your stories and photos about your experiences along the route that we could include on the poster describing our progress which will be up in Gillin Hall.  We would also use your photos and/or stories in the description of progress that is published on the SJN website.  I am more than willing to edit your material, fix your spelling, and try to put your thoughts into a nice story for you if you have concerns about writing.  If several of you have experiences in the same place, we might have all of them on the poster and might edit them for the website.  

**Please note that by sending us materials you are giving us permission to make them public.

     The Walk begins on January 29th and we will complete our 8 week walk on March 25th.  

     Please send photos and stories to or by mail to: K. Scharer, 6403 Brockington Drive, Columbia, SC 29206 as soon as possible so they are received in time to be used.  I hope to hear from many of you!
