Senior Pilgrimage 2023 - A Journey of Self-Reflection
Senior Pilgrimage 2023 - A Journey of Self-Reflection

Senior students participated in the annual Senior Pilgrimage on Saturday, September 23, for a day-long, 15-mile hike along the Snoqualmie Valley Trail from Snoqualmie Falls to Carnation.

This retreat is a symbolic journey for seniors and focuses on self-reflection and preparation for their final year on campus. The hike, led by students, is interspersed with prayer, discussion, activities, personal faith reflections, food breaks and games.

The Senior Pilgrimage Cross, which resides during the school year in the Chapel, is carried by students on the hike. The cross displays a pendant from every senior class that has completed the pilgrimage since 1982, the first year the pilgrimage took place.

Senior Pilgrimage is one of Eastside Catholic's oldest and most beloved retreats and often a highlight of both students, faculty and staff who participate. Eastside Catholic's Librarian Doug Ammons is a frequent volunteer and participant in Senior Pilgrimage.

Senior Pilgrimage is such a rewarding event! It's so uplifting seeing the joy in our seniors as they experience the day and watching them encourage and support each other on the journey.

We look forward to seeing what the future holds for the Class of 2024!
