Pilgrimage to Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception
SAVE THE DATE for this Diocesan pilgrimage to the Basilica in Washington, D.C. This will be the first time Bishop Gainer will lead our diocese to Washington since he was installed in 2014. The schedule for the day includes Mass and time for confessions, private prayer, touring of the Shrine, and visiting the spacious book & gift shops or having a bite to eat in the cafeteria.
Those wishing to attend should contact their parish as the parishes will be making their own arrangements for bus transportation from their parish to the Shrine and determining pickup locations, times, cost, etc. Smaller parishes may wish to join with others in reserving buses as a region. For those wishing to drive on their own there is ample parking at the Shrine. A schedule for the day and a list of parish buses will be made available here when it is available.
This pilgrimage is a part of the 150th Anniversary Celebration of the Diocese of Harrisburg.
