We are visiting Castlewood State Park and will meet at the River Scene Trail Trailhead, up at the northern end of the parking lot. Please arrive between 9:45 and 10am. (Saturday, April 23) It’s a moderate trail–a short but steep climb up to the ridge, then level with spectacular views of the river below. We plan to hike for about a mile out, then back, with plenty of breaks as needed. Please also bring a chair or picnic blanket for after the hike. If you would like to join us post-hike for the preaching/eating portion of the day, we plan to get back to that north end of the trailhead lot around 11:30. We’ll save our Rosary for then as well, considering the busyness of the trail and the steepness at the beginning.As usual, don’t forget to pack essentials like water, bug spray, hats and sunscreen, trekking poles or hiking stick (good for steep trails), good shoes, snacks, etc. See you Saturday.
We’d like to thank The Association of Hebrew Catholics for not only sponsoring this website, but also for their dedication to spreading the Good News that the Messiah has come and brought about His New Covenant for all. Their bookstore has a wonderful set of books written by Sr. Mary Baruch, who not only converted to Catholicism from Judaism, but entered religious life to pursue a life of perfection and holiness with our Lord. You may find her books here!
