While the Covid-19 pandemic prevented the annual Ecumenical Charity Walk of Frankfurt's English-speaking churches from taking place in 2021, the parish undertook a "mini-pilgrimage" on Oct. 17 along the northern Frankfurt segment of the Bonifatius Weg, a hiking trail leading from Mainz to Fulda that commemorates the funeral cortege of St. Boniface, the Apostle of Germany, in 754. The walk, which concluded with lunch at a nearby restaurant, was the first outside event of the combined International English-Speaking Catholic Parish since its formation.
