Pilgrimage of Faith October 13, 2013

pilgrimage of faith

"The renewal of the Church is also achieved through the witness offered by the lives of believers: by their very existence in the world, Christians are called to radiate the word of truth that the Lord Jesus has left us." Porta Fidei 6


All Catholics of the Archdiocese, especially youth, young adults and families, are invited to join in a walking pilgrimage to the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul on Sunday, October 13, 2013. Walk, drive, take the train - or any combination of these three - to arrive at the Cathedral in time for prayer and praise and 6:30pm Mass with Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap. The Year of Faith is the perfect time to give public witness to your faith in Jesus Christ and His Church!
