Saturday, March 5 is the Men’s Ministry Pilgrimage to the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in DC.
The Shrine is once again open to the public, so we are going to try to restart our traditional pilgrimage. If you haven’t been to the Shrine, it is beautiful and one of the largest Catholic churches in the world.
We plan to include a guided tour, Confessions available, Mass, private prayer/bookstore, and Stations of the Cross. The trip may also include lunch at The Dubliner or the Irish Times near Union Station. Free lunch for the carpool drivers (part of this pilgrimage tradition), you are also welcome to drive your own car.
Men of St. Joseph and St. Edward’s are also being invited.
Departure will be at 6:30 a.m., from the front parking lot at Saint Bridget, hoping to arrive with time to spare before the 9:00 a.m. tour. We try to get back in time for the Vigil Mass on Saturday, but we are usually cutting it pretty close.
If you want to go on the pilgrimage, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your mobile phone contact info. Also, let me know if you want to be a driver and, if so, how many people you can fit comfortably in your vehicle.
