The word “pilgrim,” derived from the Latin peregrinum, conveys the idea of wandering over a distance, but it is not just aimless wandering. It is a journey with a purpose, and that purpose is to honor God.
It is with this purpose that our parish organizes occasional day pilgrimages to places of religious significance.
Our next pilgrimage is scheduled for Feb. 6th, 2016. We are going to visit Holy Resurrection Monastery in St. Nazianz, WI to learn more about and experience an Eastern (Byzantine) Rite of the Catholic Church. Click on this link for all the details!
