Winter on the route
Let us present you again with some reports of the pilgrims of our route; this time we encourage you to travel along the route in the winter time: “Hello, I would like to provide some information and photographs which prove that it is also possible to travel along the Pomeranian Way of St. James in the winter time.
We had planned to cover the Żukowo-Kartuzy stage on 7th December. Suddenly,
the Pomerania was hit by Xavier hurricane and a heavy snowfall. Nevertheless, 5 people
decided to set off the route on Saturday. This is one of the most beautiful sections of the Pomeranian Way of St. James within the Pomeranian Province. It is almost 18 km long. The fresh snowfalls hindered the walk and made forging the way through snow banks
even more difficult. Spiritual experience and aesthetic impression served though as a reward. In December and January this section was also travelled along by subsequent pilgrims.
Niedźwiedzica-Sobieszewo section may be travelled along in two ways. In October we made use of the ferry crossing in Mikoszewo and we travelled across the Sobieszewo Island, and in January (two terms) 10 people set off the route along the alternative way (18,4 km) across the bridge in Kiezmark and Wiślinka.
17 degrees frost we encountered in Kartuzy on 25th January did not deter us from the pilgrimage and we set off in group of six women to Sianowo (23 km).
Winter weather did not either discourage us from travelling in January along
Elbląg - Nowy Dwór Gdański stage (3 people) - approx. 27 km, and in February from
the Church of St. James in Gdańsk to the Church of St. James in Oliwa (12 people in two terms) - 10 km and from Sobieszewo to the Church of St. James in Gdańsk (5 people) - 14 km.
The route from Elbląg to Sianowo covered not only Catholic temples including
4 churches of St. James - in Niedźwiedzica, Tuja, Gdańsk and Oliwa as well as the Sanctuary of the Madonna of Sianowo, but also the mosque in Oliwa in Abrahama Street.
Feel invited to participate in the holy mass in the Church of St. James in Gdańsk on 25th February, at 6:00 p.m. said for the intention of the pilgrims travelling along the routes of St. James as well as in the meeting and slideshow presenting the route to Santiago de Compostela.
