Join us for Thomas Merton’s Interspiritual Journey, a special pilgrimage to Kentucky November 10-16. Together we will travel to the Thomas Merton Center at Bellarmine University, Our Lady of Gethsemani Abbey where Merton lived as a monk, and the Festival of Faiths in Louisville. Trappist monk Thomas Merton is considered a giant of 20th-century spirituality. His writing and teaching paved the way for later developments such as Centering Prayer and the growth of interfaith dialogue.

We will travel as a small group of pilgrims to visit places of historical significance for Thomas Merton and immerse ourselves in the contemplative teachings and rhythms that made Merton who he was. While committed to his Catholic Christian faith, he was intensely curious about other religions, Zen Buddhism, in particular. For the last portion of the pilgrimage, we will embrace Merton’s interfaith curiosity by attending the annual Festival of Faiths in Louisville, a vibrant celebration of the world’s great religious traditions.
