Pilgrimage: UK Recommendation

Recommendations are due by 11:59 p.m. on Fri., Nov. 1st.

Pilgrimage: United Kingdom inherently possesses a contemplative component, as students are asked to reflect upon their beliefs, examine their faith, and consider their spiritual journey. Participants also discuss their faith within an ecumenical context and are expected to demonstrate respect and understanding for those who have both similar and different beliefs and practices. The half-unit course culminates in a travel intensive along St. Cuthbert’s Way in which students walk 12 to 15 miles a day through a variety of terrain. Please bear this context in mind as you respond to the following questions regarding the applicant.
