The Men's Ministry Pilgrimage to the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington is on Saturday, March 5. This year we will be joined by a contingent of the Men of St. Joseph from St. Edward Church.
The Lenten Pilgrimage includes a tour of the largest Catholic basilica in the United States, opportunity for Confession, a private Mass in the Our Lady of Czestochowa Chapel celebrated by Fr. Stefan, Stations of the Cross, and lunch at an Irish Pub. Also available is an optional side trip to the nearby Dominican House of Studies, as well as opportunities for private prayer and gift shop/bookstore shopping.
In this Year of Mercy, the Holy Door of The Shrine will be open and Pope Francis has conceded a plenary indulgence to pilgrims meeting the usual conditions (all available at some point during the day).
We depart from St. B's front lot promptly at 6:30 am (offer it up as part of your Lent). We are usually back in Richmond by 5:30-6:00 pm
