WALKING THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO WITH FATHER DAVE

Read a wonderful article from The Monitor regarding Father David Swantek and 13 of his Princeton University students walking the Camino de Santiago during Spring Break 2014.

Each of them did palanca Father Swantek said. "Each carried a pyx with names and intentions of classmates, alumni, relatives, (and) people of our Diocese in them.  They served as a physical, tangible reminder of how, when on pilgrimage, we carry others with us and offer up our suffering and prayers on their behalf.”

The article, Princeton University students devote recess to prayer on the TRENTON MONITOR at this LINK.
