  1. Congratulations to each and all of our Detroit pilgrims! I have reviewed your stories and photos, and thought of our own “Camino” two years ago (Fr. Rooney and Fr. Birney remember!). I rejoice that you have had a “Buen Camino” and wait with hope for your continued discernment of your personal vocation. Thanks to all of you for your faith, your dedication, your support of one another!

  2. God bless you all. Looking forward to seeing our Father Rooney and all the pilgrims safely back to the Detroit area.

  3. Felicidades por su esfuerzo, estamos pidiendo a Dios para que los traiga con bien a su hogar, día a día están en nuestras oraciones, que la sangre preciosa de nuestro Señor Jesucristo los cubra y nuestra virgencita de Guadalupe los abrace con su amor maternal.

  4. Dear Pilgrims,
    You have reached St. James! Congratulations! We now pray for your safe flight back to Detroit. Thanks for allowing us to be a part of your journey. God Bless all of You.

  5. Dear Pilgrims,
    You’re almost there! It appears that the journey and even the blisters have been well worth it all. Your journal entries have allowed all of us back home to see how each step has made an impact on your spiritual lives. Please keep all Fathers in your prayers as we approach their special day this Sunday. We will continue to keep all of you in our prayers especially Father Tim and Father Steve.

  6. Dear Pilgrims,

    Soon you will reach your final destination — Santiago de Compostelo. In these last few days of your journey, I am asking you to please pray to our sweet Lord Jesus and beseech him to comfort and protect my granddaughters, Erin and Abbey, and their mother, my daughter Cathy, as they will be going through a very difficult and traumatic time in their life. They will be difficult days for everyone in the family, but particularly these three. I know God hears all prayers, but especially prayers for children, Thank you so much.

    May God continue to bless all of you as you complete this journey of yours, Know that many people are praying for you and your intentions as you pray for us and our intentions,

  7. Dear Pilgrims,
    I’ve joined my night prayers to yours every evening while looking over the pictures you have been sending along the way to St. James. The beauty of the sunlight streaming through the trees, the other pilgrims you have met along the road reminds me of my journey and your journey with Jesus. Where will the Lord lead me? Who will we meet along the way? May the days ahead be filled with more encounters along the path of your lives. Please pray for Susan Ryan who died at the age of 54 leaving behind her husband and two daughters. My prayers for all of you.

  8. Dear Pilgrims,

    Be assured of the prayers of the Guardian Angels and Bishop Foley Catholic Community. Our children began their Vacation Bible School week today and will remember you in prayer each day. As we prayed in morning prayer today, “Lord, let the light of your face shine upon us”. May you continue to place your trust in Him as you encourage one another on the journey. Please pray for all of our youth that they too may keep their eyes fixed on Jesus as they journey in faith.

  9. Dear Pilgrims,
    I want you to know how much I enjoy looking at the pictures and reading about your journey. May God continue to bless each and everyone of you as your journey winds down and you reach your ultimate goal. I ask that you pray for Pat Berry and Patti Abke who are dealing with health issues. Know that they are praying for you. God bless all of you.

  10. Dear Pilgrims,
    You are all AWESOME for taking this journey. Whether you come back and become God’s servants in becoming great priests or simply in being closer to Him in ways most will never know – taking on the challenge and completing this difficult yet inspiring journey is amazing! We at St. Clement here in Center Line are proud and will continue to pray for your safety and your faithfulness.

    all bishops and priests. God’s blessings be yours on a safe journey and good tidings to Fr. Stephen Rooney on his 30th anniversary day of ordination. Thank you for all you do in the service of God.

  12. Dear Pilgrims,
    It’s almost Sunday and the churches in Detroit and throughout the world will hear the words in our 2nd reading, “We walk by faith and not by sight!” Your “faith walk” has taken you around the world and you have encountered the Lord with tired feet but with an open heart. Thank you for accepting the call to “follow me”. May the Holy Spirit continue to guide you and carry you safely to St. James. God is Good!
    Fr. Stan Pachla
