Paddling with the Mystics (Free)

  • Ended
  • George Rogers Park, Lake Oswego

Service Description

Join Ann Steigerwald, Randy Miller, and Christine Naylor of the Franciscan Spiritual Center for our first ever “Paddling with the Mystics.” We will meet at George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego at 9:30am. Look for us at the far left of the beach near the rental facility. Bring your own kayak/ paddleboard if you wish (or rent from outfitter there) and together we will plan to launch on the Willamette River by 10am. As a group, we will do a leisurely paddle close to shore up to Hog Island and back. We will stop at intervals on the river for some reflection and if space allows, we will also make a stop on the island to stretch. On this day we will listen in on the words of Hildegard von Bingen. After a two-hour paddle, we will gather for lunch back at George Rogers Park launching site (where there are picnic tables). Parking at the launch is free. Join us as we endeavor to create community, savor the natural splendor of the Pacific Northwest, and practice praying with our bodies, our hearts, and our neighbors. If you are interested in joining us, please register soon because we will limit the number of participants. RSVP below. Once you successfully register with the Franciscan Spiritual Center, we will send a confirmation email containing a map and directions as well as a Waiver and Release for the outdoor water activity. If you have any questions about the event, contact Ann at If you do not have your own kayak or standup paddleboard, make sure you reserve one soon at: Single kayaks generally rent for $35 and there are also two person kayaks available. The outfitter provides life vests, which will be required for this event. This is a “choose what you pay” event. So, when you register with the Franciscan Center, you may choose an amount (of $0, $10, or $20.) We meet at George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego at 9:30am on Thursday, July 27. Expect to be on the water for 2 hours. Bring your own lunch and we will picnic at noon at the conclusion of our paddle.
