What is a Pilgrimage?
A pilgrimage is a journey to a sacred place undertaken as an act of religious devotion. Its purpose may be simply to venerate a certain saint or ask some spiritual favor; beg for physical cure or perform an act of penance; express thanks or fulfill a promise.
The Modern Catholic Dictionary
The goal this year is to have a pilgrimage in each Diocese or region of the state. This is a great way to work in partnership with our Dioceses. The pilgrimage will not only be for the Knights but for all of our Parishes to participate in. This will be a great opportunity for our Honor Guard to be showcased and to provide a spiritual experience for all in attendance.
So far this year we have one Pilgrimage scheduled in the Kansas City area at Conception Abbey & Clyde Monastery on September 27th and one at Mary, Mother of the Church National Shrine in Laurie on October 4th.
Check the State website for details on these and any other Pilgrimages or you can contact the Religious Pilgrimage Chairman Harry Lee Beste or your Diocesan Chairman.
