  Pilgrims Crossing Borders is a pilgrim relay from Trondheim/Nidaros to Rome and Jerusalem, planned to take place in 2015.

 

 The distance from Nidaros to Rome is approximately 3000 kilometres. If we walk around 20 km a day, it will take us something like six months to get to Rome.

 

  The point is not really to send a group of pilgrims off on the whole long journey. Rather, we envision a relay walk with many participants from several countries, where pilgrims from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Italy, UK, USA – and other countries – literally join in passing on a specially made pilgrim staff and a special diary from Nidaros to Roma – and then on to Jerusalem.

 

  It sounds ambitious, but we think it’s possible. If our pilgrimage started in Trondheim in April 2015, we would arrive in Rome in October the same year. The next stage would depend on how we travel, but we expect to arrive in Jerusalem in the autumn of 2015.

 

  150 pilgrims from Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Sweden, USA, UK and Norway have already signed up to participate.

 

  International cooperation

 

  “Pilgrims Crossing Borders” will follow existing pilgrimage routes where possible. Through Europe we will follow the “Romweg of Stade” which goes from Stade, near Hamburg, then crossing Germany, Austria, Northern and Central Italy to Rome. This route follows the itinerary of the Abbot Albert von Stade in the 13th century. The route is being promoted by the German association Via Romea Stadensis and the Italian Via Romea Germanica.

 

  We have good connections and idealistic allies all over Europe. So far we have established cooperation with the following associations and supporters: three Scandinavian associations, the Romweg of Stade (from Stade in Germany to the border of the Alps), the Via Romea Germanica (from the border of the Alps to Rome), Rete dei Cammini (which includes Gruppo dei Dodici - (Rome to Benevento)and the Club Alpino Italiano (CAI).

 

  The European Institute of Cultural Roads, the European Association of the Via Francigena and the National Pilgrim Centre in Norway have endorsed the idea of our pilgrim walk from Nidaros to Rome and Jerusalem. Other international participants may join. Consider yourself invited !

 

  The pilgrim staff – which has been specially made for this event – will start its journey from Trondheim on April 22nd 2015. The Norwegians will walk - or ski, depending on the weather. Transport solutions will be chosen if necessary as the main idea is to keep to the schedule and ensure that the staff and the diary arrive at their

destination at the agreed time and place.

 

  The itinerary below should give you an idea of what we have in mind.

  Welcome pilgrims

 

  Pilgrims who wish to participate in the walk should contact the local arrangers, i.e. the pilgrim confraternities and/or contact persons who are responsible for the stages.

 

  We invite groups as well as individual wanderers to join the walk for one or more stages. To sign up,

contact the person who is responsible for the stage(s) you would like to join.

 

  Pilgrims who wish to join the walk along other pilgrim trails towards Rome and Jerusalem are welcome to participate. Our walk should symbolise diversity and togetherness.

 

  We are optimists and hope that many people will want to join. We are looking forward to getting to know pilgrims from near and far. All participants who wish to participate are invited to participate in the celebration on arrival in Rome on 15 October 2015.
