SFM Youth Group attend Black Elk Pilgrimage

"On June 26, 2021, we traveled with some of the older SFM youth group members to the Black Elk Pilgrimage. We were told about this pilgrimage and invited by Angie Stover from the Sacred Heart Parish, Pine Ridge, SD. We stayed at the Terra Sancta Retreat Center. We attended Mass in the morning at the base of the peak, which was celebrated by Fr. Brad Held, SJ and Fr. Edmund Yainao, SJ. After Mass we all started the pilgrimage hike to Black Elk Peak. When we reached the top we all prayed together the prayer for Black Elk. It was an awesome experience for our group. We were fortunate to meet all our great relatives from our neighboring Pine Ridge Parishes. They are always so welcoming and encouraging. We stayed the night and attended Mass at St. Isacc Jogues parish that Sunday. It was Fr. Ed Witt's birthday. He introduced us and the SFM youth to his parishioners and prayed for our group, we are very grateful for the prayers. We finished our trip with a quick stop by the mall and headed home. It was a great trip and experience for our youth to participate in. We are thankful for these opportunities that we share with the SFM Youth group members and chaperones. Thank you to our chaperones Carmelle and Wicahpi. Thank you! Ben & Jenny-Religious Education Program/SFM Youth group."
