Brothers and Pilgrims,
It’s just about time to make your reservation. We have 2 new features!
We have arranged for a private guided tour of St. Matthew’s Cathedral in Washington. This is the seat of the Archdiocese and not only plays a role in our Nation’s history, but is a most beautiful Cathedral. Trust me…you will be impressed.
Second, the Knights of Columbus have opened the Blessed John Paul II Shrine with Saturday hours. Those of you who would like to visit the JPII Shrine will have that opportunity as well.
Moreover, since certain of our destinations have been designated as official pilgrimage sites during this Year of Faith, and our schedule includes the opportunity for the other requisites, you will be able to gain a plenary indulgence by fully participating in this year’s Pilgrimage. Please spread the word.
Here is the schedule:
6:30 a.m. Depart St. Bridget’s
9:00 Tour St. Matthew’s Cathedral
10-11:00 Proceed to Shrine of the Immaculate Conception/private time for coffee, bookstore, etc.
11:00 Options: Tour of Shrine (for those of you seeing the Shrine for the first time, the Tour is highly recommended–even if you’ve been numerous times, it’s still the type of tour where you learn something new every time); Confessions; private prayer; visit to adjacent John Paul II Shrine
12:00 Holy Mass in the Crypt Church
1:00 Stations of the Cross in the Crypt Church (also highly recommended) or additional time for private reflection/bookstore/gift shop, etc.
2:00 Depart Shrine for lunch at appropriate Irish pub before return trip home.
5:30-6:00 Arrive St. B parking lot (usually closer to 6, but in time for The Knight’s St Patrick’s Day Dinner)
