Walk for Hunger Sacred Stroll

Date: 
May 1, 2021 - 1:00pm to 3:30pm

In honor of the Walk for Hunger, we will have a Sacred Stroll on Saturday, May 1 from 1-3:30pm at the Arnold Arboretum! Since the Walk for Hunger is virtual this year, this is an opportunity to walk in a small group and worship together, focusing on sharing and justice for people experiencing hunger, food insecurity, and poverty.

We will meet at 1pm at the Arborway Gate, near the Hunnewell Visitor Center (https://goo.gl/maps/fHYzJ9zcFTmkn9FR6). It is on Arborway/Route 203. There is parking along the Arborway right after passing the gate; it is recommended that you arrive early to park. (See also this map of the arboretum: https://arboretum.harvard.edu/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/basic-map-bw.pdf.)

To join the United Parish Walk for Hunger team that is raising money to alleviate food insecurity and hunger through Project Bread, or to donate through our team, visit http://support.projectbread.org/goto/unitedparish. The Sacred Stroll is open to all, whether or not you “join the team” or donate! 

The Sacred Stroll will be about 2.5 miles on primarily paved paths. Bring your mask, water, sunscreen/hat, bug spray, journal/Bible/pen if you desire, and hopefully a friend. We will be socially distanced and masked. Children and youth should be accompanied by parents or guardians. Dogs are welcome in the arboretum, as long as they are leashed! There are port-a-potties and hand sanitizer on-site, though the Visitor Center is closed.

Let us know if you’re interested in walking together! Please RSVP to Katharine at seminarian@upbrookline.org by 9am on Saturday, May 1. You can also contact Katharine with questions or concerns. We hope to see you there!
