There is an old tradition in Christianity of going on a pilgrimage, that is in walking to and through sacred spaces. Bishop Fisher did some of this work as a religious pilgrim when he visited sacred spots like Iona Abbey over the summer. The Bishop has said, “I think Western Massachusetts is a sacred place. So I have decided, with the enthusiastic support of my staff, to walk the diocese.” So routes have been mapped out across each corridor for this three-part pilgrimage. On October 28-31, the Bishop walked, joined all the way by others, from Milford to Leominster. All the way he greeted local people and met with community leaders. The second trek, through the Pioneer Valley corridor, will be the week after Easter. And the Berkshires leg will take place in May or June.
