                    Virtual Walk to Bethlehem                                                         

                                                River Nile    

Once again, we will be doing a virtual walk to Bethlehem this fall.  We will start the walk on Monday, 9/21/2020, nd the first week will end on Sunday, 9/27.  Please report your miles for each week no later than Monday evening.  We will continue walking each week through 11/15 nd your final report of you miles will be due no later than 11/18.  We will be taking a differetn route than previous years beginning by walking to Charlotte and flying into Kenya, Africa.  We will then follow the Nile River up to Egypt before heading into Jordan and then into Bethlehem.  We will have many holy sites to visit along the way and a variety of adventures, such as a safari, seeing King Tut's Tomb, and a boat trip on the Nile.  I know some of you have ancestors from these countries, may have immigrated from one of these countries or have visited there sometimes.  Your pictures of Catholic sites from these countries would be welcome as early as possible so they can be included as appropriate.  Safari

     Any one of any age can participate; paricipation and following the weekly reports onine of our adventures may help you feel less bored during this pandemic.  The walk is virtual because person or family completes the activity individually and the miles are totalled among everyone who participates that week.  A mile = 20 minutes of moderate activity, including walking, swimming, sports, playtime, or even mowing the lawn.  Participants record their mileage for each week and report it to the Tour Director's e-mail ([email protected]).  If you don't have an email, you may call in your results to Wendy Bobadilla, the Parish Nurse at 803-788-3252, ext. 327.
