Why Would 100 Women Walk 100 Miles? They Were Inspired by the Pope

September 15, 2015

Leaving today from the York County Detention Center in Pennsylvania, 100 women are starting on a 100-mile pilgrimage to share their stories of migration. The women were inspired by Pope Francis' call for dignity for migrants and urge for parishes and countries to open their doors to refugees. The women will walk about 15 miles a day and will arrive in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 22, the same day the pope arrives for a U.S. visit.
