Creatio Pilgrims Embark on 1700Km Pilgrimage From Rome to Krakow

Creatio, a Denver-based non-profit, is leading a group of young men on a 1700Km pilgrimage to answer Pope Francis’ call for the Year of Mercy by walking from Rome, Italy to Krakow, Poland. This pilgrimage is officially sponsored by the Vatican Pontifical Council for the Laity and the Archdiocese of Denver and will be a time of vocational discernment for the pilgrims, allowing them sacred space and time to listen to God’s call for their lives. During this journey, an experienced pilgrim guide, Ann Sieben, of the Society of Servant Pilgrims, will teach four young men the ancient practice of mendicant pilgrimage. This ancient pilgrim route extends from Rome to Austria, through the Czech Republic and into Poland. This route is scattered with monasteries along its path, giving the pilgrims a place to sleep and an opportunity to have a wide variety of deep spiritual and cultural experiences along the journey. The pilgrimage will climactically end as the pilgrims enter Krakow at the start of World Youth Day, an international Catholic event focused on faith and youth, in which Pope Francis will be present.
