The Graces of Pilgrimage

Dominican Friars | November 15, 2023

When you take on something like hosting a national pilgrimage for the first time, you can’t really know what the end result will be. But you pray, and you trust, and you hope that your efforts bear the intended fruit. 

So, on the Vigil of the Rosary Sunday, the Dominican Friars decided to invite Catholics from all over the country to join us on pilgrimage—to pray the Rosary, to preach about the Rosary and Our Lady, to hear your confessions, to adore the Lord in Adoration, and to worship him at Holy Mass. 

Over three thousand people flocked to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC, to pray with us and with Our Lady. 

For those of you who came on pilgrimage, you can watch this recap of some of what was captured that day. And for those of you who were not able to make it, this video may inspire you to plan to join us for next year’s Dominican Rosary Pilgrimage—scheduled for September 28, 2024. 

Until then, pick up your Rosary. Eyes on Christ. Pray God to send the Spirit of Truth to lead us all into truth.
