Saturday March 3

The Schedule:
 6:15-6:20 a.m.  Gather in front parking lot at St Bridget. 

6:30 a.m. Prompt departure from front parking lot of St. Bridget

8:30  Coffee, etc. in Shrine cafeteria

9:00  Guided Tour of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception


10:00  Opportunity for Confession

10:30-11:30  Visit to the Dominican House of Studies. Brother Anthony will be giving us a brief tour of the House. The visit will conclude with us praying the Rosary in the Dominican Chapel, led by Brother Anthony.


Note: All activities on the Pilgrimage are optional.    You are of course free to do as little or as much as you like. If you are not interested in the DHOS tour, the time between 10-12 Noon is specifically set aside and can be spent by going to the nearby Shrine of Saint John Paul II ( presumably a vehicle will be available if not amenable to walking), Confession, visit to the Bookstore/Gift shop, or simply spent in private prayer or further exploring the Shrine. 

12 Noon  Gather at the Crypt Church for Holy Mass. Immediately following the Mass, the Stations of the Cross are prayed in the Crypt Church. 

After Stations of the Cross (approximately 1:30) depart Shrine and head to local pub for luncheon ( drivers are treated ).

3:00 p.m.  Depart for Richmond

We currently have 17 folks signed up from St. Bridget, but I only have 2 land yacht drivers enlisted (Charlie and Tony), and Ron, who has room for 4. So, we might need 1 more vehicle. I’ll also check with the St. Edward group, they may have an extra seat?

Peace be with you..
