    "As a friar for over 25 years, I have always dreamed about doing something like this. I thank God for these young friars and their passion – it’s contagious!"

    “It seemed important [for me] as a formation director to accompany the deep desire of our younger friars to live out our charism in this way. For me personally, it will be a way to walk with Christ.”

Josh and friends, your example to follow Christ and experience God is motivating, just flippin motivating. Josh, I love you bro and I'm hoping I can track you down before October, Dudas

Hi, I just met the friars on 221 just past Bedford. I only wish my children had been with me to meet them... I was so taken aback at seeing them that I didn't even think to ask what they might need. I wish I knew what I could offer them. I hope to try to locate them again now that I've Googled them and know more about their pilgrimage. God bless them...
