Walk your own pilgrimage to 's-Hertogenbosch

On Sunday April 10, 2022, it is possible to join us on the last stage of the pilgrimage. We will start at 9 am from Heusden to arrive around 4 pm at the Sint Jans Cathedral in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. There we will be welcomed by the Bishop of 's-Hertogenbosch. He will dedicate the special service in memory of Frans and to reflect on all the people in Syria who desperately need our help. The service starts at 4:30 PM.

Sunday April 10, 2022

From Heusden to ‘s-Hertogenbosch. You will receive the .gpx file of the route by e-mail no later than one week before departure.

Sponsorship money
Our support is needed for the reconstruction in Syria. We therefore ask you to collect at least 184 euros for the projects that we support with Walk of Homs. The sponsor amount is based on the fact that there was only one Frans van der Lugt, who would turn 84 in 2022. We understand that it can be difficult to raise money, but we are happy to help you with some extra inspiration. View our sponsor tips here.

It is possible to keep track of your walked kilometers on your action page. You can do this by manually adding the kilometers to your action page after each walk. Or by linking your Strava account when you are logged in. Then your kilometers will automatically be added to your action page after each walk.

Supporters St. John's Cathedral, 's-Hertogenbosch

Of course it will then be possible for them to attend the prayer celebration at 4.30 pm on Sunday 10 April 2022. Your supporters must reserve a place in the church for this. They can do this on the page "Commemorate together and reflect on".
