“A visitor passes through a place, the place passes through the pilgrim.”
– Cynthia Ozick
One description of the original Mi’kmaq name for Tatamagouche is “where the rivers meet.” Through years past, in this beautiful place, rivers and cultures and stories have met and mingled.
This pilgrimage will explore the landscape of Tatamagouche Centre including the prayer garden, trail, creek, cairn, Ross’s point, labyrinth, fireside and waterside. Pilgrims will hear profound stories of origin, of delight and despair, of risk and reconciliation. We will pause along the way for reflection and ritual.
Join the pilgrimage. Immerse yourself body and soul in the experience of being fully present in place. Grounded in the story of the land under our feet and the waters flowing around us, we will journey through the stories told by Tatamagouche and in the place where the rivers meet.
