Join Bishop Burbidge for the Diocesan Marian Pilgrimage on October 30, 2021

September 15, 2021

Bishop Michael Burbidge, Bishop of Arlington, invites you to join him to mark this “Year of St. Joseph” at the diocesan Marian pilgrimage to the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, October 30, 2021.

The theme for this year’s pilgrimage is “St. Joseph, Guardian of the Body of Christ,” as we prayerfully gather as one diocesan family within the Shrine devoted to his wife and our Mother.

All are welcome and encouraged to attend this free event! Individual pilgrims and families are welcomed to participate on their own, and there is no registration required to attend.

Boxed lunch options will be available at the Shrine (approximately $10 each), but pilgrims are encouraged to bring their own bagged lunch.

The Shrine is wheelchair accessible and there will be sign interpreting in ASL for the deaf. For more information about the Shrine, feel free to visit their website (https://www.nationalshrine.org/).

Currently, the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception requires masks for all visitors. Check back here on the days leading up to the pilgrimage for any updates to the COVID requirements at the Shrine.
