Eucharistic Revival
Pilgrimage

The National Eucharistic Pilgrimage will accompany Jesus from door-to-door,
lighting hearts on fire along the way.

Join us on the Marian route, the northern arm of the pilgrimage.

What is the Eucharistic Revival Pilgrimage?

The Eucharistic Revival Pilgrimage will be a 3 month long pilgrimage that leads to Indianapolis. There will be 4 different pilgrimages coming from different ends of the country (Minnesota, California, Texas, and Connecticut) and meeting in Indianapolis for the National Eucharistic Congress. This will be a unique opportunity to pray, seek your own deeper walk with Jesus, and to be a witness to everyone we encounter on our pilgrimage.

Who is it for?

YOU! We would love for everyone (young and young at heart) in the diocese to have an opportunity to pilgrimage with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, whether that is for 1 block, or 10 miles.

What are the dates?

The pilgrimage will officially start Pentecost Sunday (May 19, 2024) at Lake Itasca. The day prior, May 18, 2024, there will be an opening ceremony at the Sanford Center in Bemidji. They are inviting all of the neighboring states to join and will have many loved clergy including Fr. Mike Schmitz and Bishop Barron in attendance.

The pilgrimage will pass through the St. Cloud Diocese May 22, 2024 (most likely arriving late afternoon/early evening) and will need to be in Clearwater on May 24, 2024.
