A scene along the Chemin Du Roy

by Sister Gayle Desarmia

May, 2009 will hold a special place in my memory for many years to come. From May 1-14, as part of my sabbatical experience, I made a walking pilgrimage between Montreal and Quebec City. My actual pilgrimage preparation began months before my sabbatical did. This preparation consisted of research, physical training and spiritual preparation. My route along the Chemin du Roy also known as the Chemin des Sanctuaires was approximately 250 km in length.

In September of 2007 a request came from the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill, Pennsylvania, to facilitate their General Chapter in July/August of 2008. Having been a facilitator for many years and having participated in numerous Chapters in our congregation, I discerned that this might be the time for me to undertake this new venture. The theme from Luke 24 — ‘Are not our hearts burning within us?’ truly captured me. The additional challenge was that I would be working through Korean translators since half the congregation is from Korea and half from the United States. Networking with trained facilitators is a bonus when undertaking a new venture.
