Groups of young adults from around the country will participate in an urban journey to ignite their faith, inspire their walk and invigorate their call to seek and serve Christ in others.
"Camino: A Sacred Journey" is a young adult gathering set for September 21-23 at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, California.
Through provocative workshops, creative worship and an interactive urban pilgrimage focused on global peace and justice, participants of Camino will partake in an urban pilgrimage, exploring the cities many contrasts, paradoxes, eccentricities and challenges while discovering sites where the values of the Millennium Development Goals, Baptismal Covenant and Franciscan Spirituality are being practiced.
Camino builds upon the work and consensus of the Young Adult Ministry Network consultations of the last three years to provide an opportunity for young adults (ages 18-30), and those designated by their parishes and dioceses as young adult ministers, to come together in community and discuss the place of young adults in the church.
Each day of the event has a specific theme. The opening day on September 21 is themed "Formation/Personal" and will include registration, and a reception followed by liturgy and a welcome address by Bishop Marc Andrus of the Diocese of California.
September 22, themed "Practice/Local," will include workshops, visits and exposure to various neighborhoods and an international Smorgasbord meal.
The gathering will conclude on September 23, under the theme of "Praxis/Global," with bible study, a forum with international partners and a liturgy with commissioning.
Cost for the three-day event is $340/Single; $195/Double; and $130/Commuter. The fees include all program fees, housing and most meals.
