Northern Walk - Sixth Week

The Walkers have made it as far as seasonal New Ulm, Minnesota on foot before heading down the I-35 for the weekend. Presently the Walkers are tarrying in seasonal Ames, Iowa to visit parishes, the stomping grounds of Erin Haakenson, a former Walker mentioned in a previous update who has joined us for a two-week stint before her wedding (congratulations!).

We should also mention that our walking route has changed from what is posted for the Northern Walk on the official Crossroads website (

-Instead of walking down to Quinn, South Dakota for June 23rd, we turned onto Highway 34 after Sturgis, South Dakota, thus avoiding the I-90. Also, our last weekend (highlighted in bold) was spent in seasonal Sioux Falls and not Brookings - we walked through the latter but had no weekend mission there.

-Also, for this upcoming week, we will be walking through all of Minnesota and on to Wisconsin before later heading south to Chicagoland, only spending a weekend (aforementioned, natch) in Iowa.

The Walkers are resting up to visit five parishes on July 6 in Ames, Ankeny, and Des Moines, Iowa, a task made more difficult by the absence of Walkers Joe and Erin, who are visiting family, friends, and well-wishers (and the Central Walk!) in Nebraska for the July 4 weekend - they are missed, and we look forward to their return to the Northern Walk on Sunday afternoon...just in time to start Night Shift (for Joe, anyway).

Terrific and Gentlemanly Leader, Northern Walk

God Bless you all. Looking forward to seeing you in Cleveland Ohio at St. Gregory the Great Church in South Euclid. How cool that Crossroads has Ohio roots.
