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.
