Pilgrim Pathways

Author: Archbishop of York Youth Trust

A free resource for Lent 2021, suitable for KS1, KS2 and KS3 that you can download and adapt to your setting.

“Many Christians use the time of Lent for reflecting on their faith and the Easter story. Some people choose to go on a pilgrimage, a walking journey that gives them space to reflect and think about their relationship with God and how they can follow Jesus’ example and be loving, giving and compassionate to the world around them.

With 6 weeks of content, Pilgrim Pathways will take pupils on a pilgrimage journey through Lent, looking at 6 different items that are important on a walking pilgrimage. Each week will focus on a different item beginning with a lamp and followed with a map, first aid kit, walking stick, shelter and finally food & drink. Pilgrim Pathways will help pupils explore how these items symbolise ideas that can help them when facing challenges in their personal life journey. They are designed to encourage reflection and practical actions that can support pupils’ wellbeing and happiness.” – Archbishop of York Youth Trust
