Blessed Solanus Canoe the Wabash

Thursday, July 30, 2020

The Blessed Solanus Canoe the Wabash is a Diocesan pilgrimage celebrating Blessed Solanus Casey on his feast day, July 30th. 

The pilgrimage begins with 8:30 a.m. Mass at St. Felix Friary in Huntington followed by breakfast in the friary cafeteria.

We will launch canoes at the Historic Forks of the Wabash in Huntington.

We will pass by the towns of Andrews and Lagro on our way from Huntington to Wabash. We will also have a chance to visit the Hanging Rock National Natural Landmark which towers nearly 75 feet above the Wabash River. 

Our Canoe pilgrimage will cover 18-19 miles on the Wabash River which has the distinction of being the state river of Indiana. Livery service will be provided by Rustic Rivers Outfitters. All participants will be provided with either a canoe or kayak and will be shuttled back from Wabash to Huntington at the conclusion of our canoe trip. Cost is $60 / person which includes rental for a canoe or kayak, paddle and life vest. It also includes breakfast, and shuttle service from Wabash to Huntington.  


We invite all those completing 8th-12th grades in the spring of 2020 to attend our first ever Blessed Solanus Canoe the Wabash on Thursday, July 30, 2020.
