Event description

Description

Join us on Saturday, October 26, for a spirit-filled walk of prayer and praise through Rock Creek Park!

The pilgrimage will be a 12-mile walk from Our Lady Queen of Poland Parish in Silver Spring, MD to the Saint John Paul II National Shrine in Washington, DC in celebration of the feast day of Saint John Paul II. Come join the fun with your family, friends, school, council, or religious community!

The walk will include the recitation of the rosary, songs of praise, and group prayer to create a truly communal pilgrimage experience. The pilgrimage will end with Mass at the Shrine and a prayer of Marian consecration followed by a celebration with music and food. A fantastic way for young adults and families to spend the day!

Shorter Walk option - Families with young children and those with other special needs can join us for the last 3 miles of the pilgrimage when we exit Rock Creek Park. When you register, check the “shorter walk” option and let us know if you need special parking accommodations at the Shrine.

Registration fee of $5 per person or $10 per family covers all costs for the day – water & snacks during the pilgrimage and the food & drink during the celebration after Mass. When registering, consider submitting any intentions that you would want participants to hold in prayer as they walk.
