Sunday Stairway Walks for 20s/30s

with No Comments

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2 P.M.–5:15 P.M., pre-registration required

(PREVIOUS WALKS OCCURRED ON JULY 11, AUGUST 8 & SEPTEMBER 26)

Did you know that Seattle has 650 publicly accessible stairways? In the early 1900s, property developers in hilly Seattle would construct public stairways for convenience and to improve access to trolly lines. Now, these scenic passageways provide opportunities to discover off-the-path views through Seattle neighborhoods.

Join with other young adults from around the Diocese of Olympia to explore and learn about different neighborhoods and Episcopal parishes within Seattle. Routes will draw inspiration from Seattle Stairway Walks and range between 2.5–4 miles at an easy pace. The walks start and end at the parish, with an opportunity to connect with clergy and other participants. We’ll also have an opportunity to learn more about the parish, meet clergy and enjoy refreshments after the walk. 

  • OCTOBER 17: St. Paul's and "Southwest Queen Anne"

Cobblestone lanes, historic landmark homes, and expansive views mark this 4.1 mile walk starting from St. Paul’s. Join other young adults from around the Diocese of Olympia to explore and learn more about Southwest Queen Anne with stops at the Wilcox Wall, Parsons Garden and Kerry Park. We’ll also get a brief background and tour of St. Paul’s from Rev. Nat Johnson. Light refreshments provided. Participants have the option of attending a 5 pm service. Learn more and register here. The route is based on this walk.
