Annual Marian Pilgrimage
The Asian and Pacific Catholic Network (APCN), in collaboration with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Secretariat of Cultural Diversity, is holding the 15th annual Marian Pilgrimage at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. More than 20 unique Catholic Asian and Pacific communities, from New York to North Carolina, gather to pray and celebrate with traditional music and sacred movements reminiscent of faith practices in their homelands. A procession, call to prayer, and Rosary will precede the Eucharist to be celebrated by Cardinal Donald Wuerl. Everyone is welcome to participate in this multi-lingual, multi-cultural celebration of faith and heritage on May 6, beginning with Confessions at 12pm and the call to prayer at 1pm. Please contact Dr. Fred Semendy of APCN at 703-472-2032 or Sr. Myrna Tordillo of USCCB at 202-541-3384 for further information.
