Pilgrimage to the shrine of St. Kateri

Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel , by Matthew Andersen.jpgThere's a unique field trip happening this weekend. Students from Concordia University who take a class in pilgrimage are going on a walking pilgrimage of their own.

Pilgrimages to holy sites are a growing phenomenon. But this particular walk is uncharted territory. The students start this morning in Old Montreal and walk all the way to Kahnawake, to the shrine of the first native American saint, Quebec's own St Kateri .
