History of the Pilgrimage
This pilgrimage is based off the ancient practice credited to St. Philip Neri, and began in Rome when early pilgrims visited the seven major basilicas as penance. Catholics in many parts of the world – especially in Poland, Italy, the Philippines and Mexico – visit seven churches on Holy Thursday following the Mass of the Lord’s Supper.
Archbishop J. Peter Sartain began this tradition in 2012 in our archdiocese. In that initial year, we had almost 150 people join us for this pilgrimage. In 2013 we had over 200. We hope each of you will consider joining us this year!
