May Pilgrimage Set for May 9

Once again, Ville Platte Catholic Youth Group will make a pilgrimage from the Ave Maria Shrine to the Benedictine Monastery.

We made the 5.5 mile pilgrimage last year, and it was a blast.  Unfortunately, I scheduled it the same weekend as high school graduation.

This year, I’ve scheduled it for Saturday, May 9.  May, of course, is the Month of Mary.  A pilgrimage is a great way to show devotion to the Mother of Christ.  Also, it’s a good way for seniors to cap off their high school careers and pray for a great life after high school.

We’ll leave from Sacred Heart Church parking lot at 9 am and drive to the Ave Maria Shrine.  We’ll leave the Ave Maria Shrine at 9:30 am.  We’ll walk the 5.5 mile route, arriving at the Monastery at about 12 noon.  We’ll have lunch and some games there at the Monastery.  We’ll be back in Ville Platte before 1:30 pm.

I need to know who’s participating, so please let me know.  It would be nice if you’d leave your name in the combox:  that way everybody will see who’s coming.

Be sure to check out the VPCYG Calendar for upcoming events.

    Sorry to miss this outing! It’s Morgan’s dance recital that day. The following weekend is SHHS grad. Please lift all graduates up in prayer.
    Peace,

    Can anyone assist, please: I am interested in learning more of a man, South Amercian by nationality and not English-speaking, who has appeared at several shrine gatherings in honor of Our Blessed Mother. I am told he is a man of great faith and would like very much to learn more of him. Can anyone provide any information? Thank you.
