Day Pilgrimage Hike

This is a prayer-filled day hike for Carroll students and young adults. Pilgrimage is part of the Catholic spirituality: to prayerfully travel on foot to a religious site in fellowship with others. Just 70 miles south of Helena, there is the fourth-largest statue in the United States. This statue is called "Our Lady of the Rockies", and it is a statue of Mary the Mother of God. This site is an inspiration for many in Montana and the west, and there is a chapel at the mountaintop where the statue resides. Monday, October 7th is the feast of the Rosary and the feast of Our Lady of Victory. In anticipation for this day, we will hike up the east ridge on Sunday October 6th in Butte, pray the rosary and stations of the cross, and receive a presentation from some men who were involved in the building of the statue.

  • 8 am - Meet at the Campus Ministry Lounge
  • 9:15 am - Park in the Skyline Dog Park
  • 4 pm - We should be back down to our cars in the late afternoon

The hike is about 2,000 vertical feet. Be prepared for a very difficult all-day hike. Bring sufficient water (lots of water!), shoes, and clothing for the approximate 3 hour hike up, 2 hours at the top, and 2 hours back down. Pack your own snacks. Bring a prayer intention or two for the day written down on a small piece of paper.
