Here are some pictures from this past weekend's 3rd. Annual Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Bethlehem, a 3 day pilgrimage from Mission San Juan Bautista to Mission Carmel, organized by St. Stephen's parish in Sacramento~ A special thank you to everyone from our own Latin Mass community that helped the pilgrims from St. Stephen's along the way, with the breakfasts, places to stay, set up, help at Mass, music, and coordination.

Thank you to the organizers from St. Stephen's, to Fr. Carota, and to all those who participated in the Pilgrimage, for visiting our Diocese and honoring our patroness, Our Lady of Bethlehem. We look forward to seeing you when you come through our Diocese again next year~
