6th. Annual Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Bethlehem 2016
The weekend of May 20th.-22nd. will be the 6th. annual pilgrimage in honor of Our Lady of Bethlehem, whose statue was the first to arrive in California with St. Junipero Serra, and is now at Mission Carmel. The initial purpose of the Pilgrimage was to have Our Lady returned to the High Altar where she was originally, and the novena prayed asked for the elevation of St. Serra to the altar (which did happen this last October.)
On May 20th. the Pilgrimage will start with the Traditional Latin Mass around 7:45 am at Mission San Juan Bautista, and on May 22nd. the ending will be a High Mass at 3:00 pm at Mission Carmel. All are invited and welcome to attend one or both Masses.
