Tour to the Seven Churches 2012 - "Fortnight for Freedom" Event
This year the Brothers of the Little Oratory will be holding the "Tour to the Seven Churches," timed to coincide with the USCCB's (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) "Fortnight for Freedom," a period dedicated to manifestations of Catholic presence in the public square. The Pilgrimage will open with Holy Mass on Saturday, 30 June at 7:00pm in St. Augustine's Monastery Chapel, South Park. Fr. Harry Neely, O.S.A. will sing the mass. Confessions will be heard, the Pilgrimage songs will be sung, and a spiritual conference will be offered. Meeting once again on Sunday morning, we will depart St. Augustine's Monastery at 7:30am on foot, visiting St. Patrick's, St. John the Evangelist, St. Vincent de Paul, Immaculate Conception, Our Lady of the Rosary, and finishing at St. Joseph's Cathedral. This year, the "Tour" has been granted a Solemn Entrance to St. Joseph's Cathedral, and the opportunity to conclude with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. This year's event is replete with significance, spiritual and secular, and we hope you can join us for the "Tour to the Seven Churches."
