Knights of Columbus Year Of faith Pilgrimage

Brother Knights,
To celebrate the Year of Faith, Knights of Columbus will gather Sunday, September 8, 2013, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. The date coincides with the 50th anniversary of the dedication of the Basilica’s 56-bell carillon, which is located in the Knights Tower and was a gift from the Order to our country’s preeminent Marian shrine.
The pilgrimage will begin with a solemn Mass at noon celebrated by our Supreme Chaplain, Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore. Following Mass, there will be remarks from Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, a Marian meditation by Archbishop Gérald Cyprien Lacroix of Québec, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, recitation of the rosary and the rededication of the Order to the Blessed Virgin Mary. A carillon postlude will conclude the event at approximately 2:30 p.m. Confessions will be available from 10 a.m. – noon. Participants may obtain a Year of Faith plenary indulgence.
You and your family are invited to celebrate the Year of Faith by joining other Knights and families in prayer, entrusting the Order and our families to the maternal intercession of Mary Immaculate. Please encourage members of your council and others to travel with you for the pilgrimage. More information is available at kofc.org/pilgrimage. Fourth Degree members are asked to use this link or the website to preregister for participation in the pilgrimage honor guard.

Sunday, September 8, 2013, Noon – 2:30 p.m. Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception 400 Michigan Avenue NE, Washington, DC 20017
