Carbondale/Simpson Camino

Thank you to all who came out and braved the morning chill for a great day on the trail! We had several groups throughout the day who went on the 3 mile walk and enjoyed a prayer to St. Rose in Carbondale at the start of the walk with Fr. Walsh, a prayer of St. Michael the Archangel with Fr. Miller in Simpson, and a prayer of Our Lady of Mount Carmel with Michael Boris along the trail on Enterprise Drive. We thank all those who supported this fundraiser held for the benefit of St. Rose of Lima Parish and Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish.
We thank our sponsors for their generous support of the event
