Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to participate the entire day of the pilgrimage?

No,  you are welcome to join for as much or as little as you are able. There are some fixed times on the schedule below, which would be a good time to join in.

Why are we having this pilgrimage?

As part of the National Eucharistic Revival, pilgrims are journeying with Jesus from the four corners of the United States to the 10th National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis, Indiana in July.

How much walking is there? Is this event accessible?

The pilgrims are averaging 10-15 miles per day. The route includes walking along the sides of roads, hills, and possibly uneven terrain for long periods of time. Please use your best judgment of your personal fitness and health levels when deciding to participate in the walking portion of the pilgrimage. There will be times along the route (evening events, Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral) that will provide better opportunities for accessibility and will not require much walking.

Who can participate? Is there an age limit for participation?

Everyone is welcome! Families, including children, are welcome to participate, with parental accompaniment and supervision. Please review the above question on walking and accessibility to determine the best way for you and your family to participate. 

How can my parish participate?

You can check the schedule below to see if your parish is a stop on the official route. If it is, please join in for the benediction stop or event that is occurring there.

If your parish is not an official stop, organize a group of parishioners to meet up and join the pilgrimage for Mass or another event on our schedule. Everyone is welcome to walk for a segment of the route or the entire route as a part of the Eucharistic Caravan.

Can my youth or young adult group participate?

Youth and young adult groups are most welcome to participate. Youth groups (under 18) are required to have the appropriate adult supervision and follow the Archdiocese’s Safe Environment protocols.

Will there be stops along the way to rest?

Yes, there will be stops at various churches and holy sites along the way. Some stops will have access to water and bathrooms. However, please be prepared to walk for long distances if you plan to walk more than one segment of the route, without a break or access to water and a bathroom, as a pilgrimage often requires.

What should I bring with me to walk the pilgrimage?

Be prepared with sunscreen, sunglasses, water bottles, a packed lunch and snacks, and a raincoat, because the pilgrimage will continue rain or shine! Exceptions will be made in cases of inclement weather that poses a threat to safety, determined by pilgrimage leaders. Please visit our website for any updates regarding changes due to inclement weather.

I see there is an Evening Prayer Night almost each day. What will the night consist of? Who can participate?

Each night there will be extended Eucharistic adoration, often with preaching and music. Please refer to the full schedule below for specifics. Faithful of all ages are welcome to participate.
