Without volunteers, the Walk would not be possible. We need 4th day volunteers to serve for a couple of hours or the entire weekend. Whatever fits your schedule. Walk volunteers practice Anonymous Servanthood. Our goal is not to intrude into the privacy of the pilgrim’s experience. This means we are to be His invisible, humble servants who serve without pride. Special care should be taken so as to not interrupt the fellowship of the pilgrims and the team anymore than is absolutely necessary. If the pilgrims do not remember you, then you have done your job well. All work done behind the scenes is to the glory of God!
