1,300 Pilgrims Visit Saint Rita Shrine

Pilgrims - July 2021.jpg

Over the past several weeks, pilgrims from around the country (Illinois, Colorado, California, and New Jersey) visited the National Shrine of Saint Rita of Cascia to celebrate Mass, participate in the sacrament of Reconciliation, go on tours, listen to talks and spend time in private prayer. In total, we welcomed 1,374 pilgrims! We were grateful for their visits and the powerful, youthful energy that so many of these groups brought to the Shrine during their visit to Philadelphia.
