Nearly 75 members of El Camino Real joined Bishop Mary and Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori for a Monterey County pilgrimage on Friday, May 1, traveling from Jolon into the Ventana wilderness and Los Padres National Forest. The day of driving and walking followed in the footsteps of James Shannon McGowan, who founded seven Episcopal missions in California (five in our diocese). At various stops the crowd was treated to readings, a history talk, and a meditation from Bishop Jefferts Schori.

Thanks to all who joined us on this marvelous day! To see more photos, visit our Facebook album at this link (no need to be a Facebook member).
