Pilgrimages Scheduled for September

Holy Hill

Hikers, long-distance walkers, in-shape disciples and all who pray

The call to a Catholic pilgrimage is a personal invitation from God to temporarily set aside day-to-day life and embark on a focused journey to grow closer to God.  In the Catholic faith the entirety of one’s like can be considered a pilgrimage with a goal of meeting God in heaven.  Christ King and Saint Bernard Parishes are offering an opportunity for a 27-mile walking pilgrimage to Holy Hill National Shrien of Mary Help of Christians.  Departure is scheduled from the Swan Blvd entrance of Christ King Church at 5:00 am.

Parishioners are invited to participate in two ways:

  • Pilgrims capable and called are encouraged to walk to Holy Hill.
  • Christ King and Saint Bernard parishioners are invited to send written prayers with the pilgrims to Holy Hill. All prayers will be carried on the pilgrimage and read at the foot of the Blessed Mother’s altar in the Shrine Chapel at Holy Hill.

You may submit prayers at either church from August 20 to September 15  Prayers can be submitted online by clicking here, or at either Parish office.  All interested are asked to contact Josh Mount via email by clicking here or call him at 262-622-3143 for more information.

Can’t Make it to Holy Hill?

Join others for a shorter pilgrimage with just as much prayer power! We’ll walk from Christ King to and from the Marian Shrine on 68th Street, approximately three miles each way. At the shrine, we’ll say a rosary together for all the prayer intentions collected and brought to Holy Hill. We’ll be leaving from the Christ King Swan Blvd entrance at 7:30 AM, Friday September 16.  If interested please click here to send an email message to Ann Baker here.
