The Leen family took a pilgrimage this weekend! I’ve lived in this area for close to 10 years, and I had no idea that there was a Shrine to Our Lady of Perpetual Help within driving distance. The administrator, Fr. Lee, was very courteous and accommodating and enthusiastically and thoroughly answered all our questions about his Byzantine parish and the Shrine.
They have a pilgrimage weekend August 10-11, and it sounds like it would be a neat opportunity for those in the area looking for a pilgrimage close to home. Camp in a field, attend confession, participate in liturgies and processions, eat good food and let the kids run around and play some games. Sort of a Catholic staycation?
Now you know!
