A hill, even in the Kansas prairie, can seem daunting after a two-day, 37-mile pilgrimage. After that distance, a hill is the last thing more than 50 travelers wanted to see. Tired, blistered and ready to be finished, they looked at the last part of their journey begrudgingly, but the Sisters of the Lamb began to sing, carrying the group forward to their destination. It was at the top of that very hill where the group learned that these religious sisters were not only Sisters to traverse this terrain in hopes of keeping a tired people going. 

Seven years before independence was declared for our thirteen colonies, Rose Philippine Duchesne was born to a politically active family in a small village in France and called by God to a life of religious service. She would eventually find her way to what we now know as Kansas, and she would eventually become the only person who lived on Kansas soil to become a saint, canonized by the Catholic Church. One hundred and sixty-six years after Philippine’s death, a Donnelly College student embarked on a pilgrimage to remember and celebrate the life and legacy of Philippine.
