From the North

Marian Route

Departing from the headwaters of the Mississippi, the northern arm of the Pilgrimage will descend through the midwestern United States, pass through Wisconsin and Illinois, and meet up with the other three Pilgrimage routes in Indianapolis at the 10th National Eucharistic Congress.

Pilgrims will attend Mass every day of their journey, along with regular evenings of reflection and adoration. As they travel, pilgrims will grow closer to Our Lord through service to local communities, inviting the most marginalized among us to be revived by the Real Presence of Jesus Christ. Will you join us on this historic journey?

About the Intercessor

The Marian route is named for its visit to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Champion—formerly Our Lady of Good Help—the first and only approved Marian Apparition site in the United States. This is fitting, because the very first Eucharistic Pilgrimage was made by our Blessed Mother who traveled with the Body of Christ growing in her womb. Just as Mary followed Jesus perfectly throughout his earthly life, pilgrims will journey closely with Our Lord from May 2024 to July 2024.

Mother of the Incarnation, pray for us!

She [Mary] is the road that God traveled in order to reach us, and the road that we must travel in order to reach him.
