The four branches of the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage will converge at the venue in a powerful symbol of unity. Then—gathered as one Church—we will present our wounded and imperfect hearts to the triune God who loves us. Just as he did on the road to Emmaus, Our Lord will listen to our troubles and reveal himself once more in the breaking of the bread.
Will Peterson is the Founder and President of Modern Catholic Pilgrim, a non-profit organization established to deepen faith and build community across the U.S. through walked pilgrimage in the Catholic tradition. While an undergraduate college student, a pilgrimage to Rome for Pope Francis’ first Easter stirred the initial thoughts of a pilgrimage ministry as Peterson felt the immense power of a physical journey of faith shared with others. After years as a Catholic school teacher in TN, KY, and CA, Peterson established Modern Catholic Pilgrim and enjoys helping to bring Jesus both physically and spiritually to American Catholics. Modern Catholic Pilgrim is the pilgrimage partner of the National Eucharistic Revival, organizing and managing all four routes destined for the 10th National Eucharistic Congress in July 2024 in Indianapolis.
