“I didn’t know we could do church outside…I think God meant for us to do church outdoors!”
Holy Hikes® is a network of Christian eco-ministries
committed to rebuilding Communion between all of
God's Creation. We are committed to a common
practice of worshiping God in the beauty of the
outdoors and hold liturgical hikes throughout the
year to immerse ourselves in what John Muir called
God's "first temples"
Rebuilding Communion With All God's Creation
a Christian Eco-Ministry
The salvation of humanity, existence of God’s
Church on this planet, and the healing of Mother
Earth are intricately tied together in one sacred
heartbeat. This belief is at the heart of eco-Ministry
and guides our work through Holy Hikes®.
“For the creation waits with eager longing for the
revealing of the children of God” – Romans 8:19

“There is no such thing as ‘human community’
without the earth and the soil and the air and
the water and all the living forms. Without these,
humans do not exist. In my view, the human
community and the natural world will go into the
future as a single sacred community or we will
both perish in the desert.” -Thomas Berry

“I feel closest to God in nature and also in the Holy Eucharist. Through Holy Hikes people across the country are bringing these two together in profound ways.”
Fr. Justin CannonFounder & Director
“Holy Hikes changed my life in many ways: It showed me the true image of God outdoors and gave me the access to God as the WORD. From this vantage point I learned to worship God in spirit and to listen to the will of God in spirit in a way I was not stuck with the popular image of God as a man. I found the Genesis 1:27 image of God in the wilderness!”
