We are inviting people to take part in a one-day pilgrim walk to Cleenish Island’s Columbanus site.
St Columbanus came to Cleenish Island as a young man to study under St Sinell, who had founded a monastery on the shores of Lough Erne. The site that we are visiting celebrates the legacy of Columbanus who spent some years here before joining the monastery in Bangor under Abbot, St Comgall.
The Covid pandemic has prevented us from travelling and visiting each other, as we would like to do. Who knows when this will be possible again? So we have organised a number of walks locally to celebrate the Columban Way/The Via Columbani across Europe.
To coincide with a walk arranged by our Friends of St Columbanus in Switzerland, we have organised this walk to Cleenish, which is just over an hour each way.
Wednesday 6th October 2021
Gather from 10.30am
Start walking at 11.00am
We will gather at the corner of Cloonatrig Road and Cleenish Road, Enniskillen BT92 2EG, UK.
Please bring a small snack and water with you. There will be a short talk and prayer reflection and the planting of an oak tree at the site.
We will be asking people to walk in groups of three.
