Stockholm, Aug. 10(CED) — St. Fransisco pilgrimmage in Europe ended on Tuesday in Oosburg in Holland.

The activity attracts over 60 people from 7 countries in Europe, namely Belgium, Britain, France, Germany, Holland, Spain and Sweden. Two walking groups, one cyclist group, one adventure group, one star group and one center group.

They walked on both Holland and Belgium along the western coast near North Sea.

The theme of this year is to follow. People discussed whom to follow and how to follow, an indepth discussion about who Fransisco was and why many people follow him.

People pay a small amount of money for daily meal and accomodation, basically in the church office.

The movement attracted about 200 people in 2006 when it was held in Gotland. Now it shrank a lot due to old age and covid-19 sideeffect.

Many participants think this was a wonderful gathering together for old friends and a good retreat from the work.

People discuss a lot of questions and improved mutual understanding among the members. During the walk, they also emphasized the simplicity of life style.
