October Parish Pilgrimage on the Bonifatiusweg in Frankfurt
A Short Walk on the St. Boniface Trail
While we aren't doing our traditional Ecumenical Charity Walk this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, we plan a short version of the annual pilgrimage along the St. Boniface Trail as a delayed opportunity for parishioners at Holy Cross, St. Leonhard's and St. Mary's to pray together and get to know one another. The walk is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021, starting at about 11:15 a.m. from the Kalbach station on the U2 and U9 U-Bahn rail lines, proceeding west through Frankfurt's Riedberg district to the Boniface Spring (where water sprang up as the saint's funeral cortege set up to camp overnight on its way from Mainz to Fulda) and concluding at the Niederursel U-Bahn station on the U3, U8 and U9 lines. It will last between an hour and 90 minutes and for those who wish -- health rules permitting -- there will be an opportunity for lunch afterward at a restaurant just across from Niederursel stop (advance signups for the meal will be taken after each Mass in the preceding weeks).
