Hike Weekend

August 31st-September 2nd

"Verso L'Alto" ("to the heights") was the motto of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati who ascended both spiritual and physical mountains as a young adult.  In his name and spirit we hope to do likewise next weekend as we head out of the city for a weekend hike.  We will be led by Fr. Gabriel CFR, for the last time before he is transferred to his new assignment in New Mexico.

We will depart from NYC on Friday evening (probably 6:15 p.m.) and head upstate to Hudson, NY, where we will have rustic accommodations at the Friar's Farm.*   You will need a sleeping bag (mostly floor space available). We invite anyone who is up for it to bring a tent to sleep outside.  Note: the farm does not have shower facilities. However, with everyone in the same boat we'll be okay! :-)

We will hike on Saturday all day and spend Saturday night at the Farm.   On Sunday we will have a Mass and brunch at the Farm, with afternoon activities to be announced.  Please do not make evening plans as we cannot guarantee a return by a specific time!

You must be in very good physical shape for this hike, and wear proper footwear (e.g. hiking shoes).  The hike will be moderately strenuous--i.e. challenging in terms of duration and also some spots of steep ascent.  Please bring lots of water and snacks, extra socks and a poncho (in case of rain).  We will provide lunch.

The cost of the weekend is $50 per person. This event is open to young adults in their 20's and 30's. All participants will also be required to sign a waiver releasing us (and the Friars, owners of the property etc.) for liability for your participation in the weekend and use of the farm house. 

Inside spaces will probably fill up first.  Please indicate in your registration if you plan to bring a tent and sleep outside.

If you wish to come on the hike, you must register by the deadline on Tuesday, August 28th; however, space may fill up before the deadline. Because it is Fr. Gabriel's last hike, we expect a longer than usual waiting list.  For this reason, cancellations made after Thursday, August 30th at 5:00 p.m. will not be refunded.

Specific details re: the meeting point and farm location will be sent only to those who register. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at

 *Location is potentially subject to change.  We will notify those who register of any changes along with other details.
