“There is no such thing as ‘human community’ without the earth and the soil and the air and the water and all the living forms. Without these, humans do not exist. In my view, the human community and the natural world will go into the future as a single sacred community or we will both perish in the desert.” -Fr. Thomas Berry
Do you feel close to God in nature? Do you love the beauty of the Holy Eucharist? Holy Hikes brings the Holy Eucharist outdoors in monthly liturgical hikes offered throughout the country. Since 2010, Holy Hikes has been inviting people to deepen their relationship with the earth through strengthening our communion with all of God’s creation.
In 2018, Holy Hikes received a grant from the Advisory Council for the Stewardship of Creation, enabled by Resolution A030, and was featured in Episcopal News Service and Living Lutheran Magazine. With this support, Holy Hikes has grown and now has seventeen chapters across the country including chapters in: the San Francisco Bay Area, Brazos Valley (Central Texas), Central Pennsylvania, the Lookout Mountains (Alabama), Northeast Ohio, Rio Grande, Southern Indiana, the Smokies, Tennessee Valley (Alabama), the Twin Cities, Upper South Carolina, Vermont, West Alabama, West Virginia, Vermont, Southern Arizona, and Washington DC.
Holy Hikes has chapters forming in Green Bay (Fond du Lac), Eastern Massachusetts, and Northwest Oregon and welcomes new chapters from all regions of the Episcopal Church and its communion partners. For more information visit www.holyhikes.org/chapters
