August 4, 2017 @ 10:00 am – August 6, 2017 @ 12:00 pm

Get Ready!  Start Walking!  The 2017 Pilgrimage is Almost Here!

Everyone’s invited. Starting Friday, August 4th, we begin a 3-Day 40 Mile Pilgrimage from St. Louis de Montfort Church in Orcutt to San Lorenzo Seminary in the Santa Ynez Valley. This is time put aside to grow in your personal relationship with God and enhance your Faith. This year’s Pilgrimage is focused on “Peace in our Communities”.

Walk 1, 2 or all 3 days. Starting Friday at 10:00 a.m. from St Louis de Montfort Church to San Ramon Chapel where we camp. Then Day 2 we walk to T. Hayers Ranch, a site across from Fess Parker Winery. Day 3 we make the final stretch to San Lorenzo Seminary. Make this a family event – support vehicles are available. This is a time of personal prayer and group prayer. Some of the weekend events include:

  • Daily Mass
  • Divine Office
  • Holy Hour Adoration
  • Stations of the Cross
  • Individual Rosary
  • Group Rosary
  • Meals & Snacks on Road
  • Best Corn on the Cob
  • Friday & Saturday Night BBQ provided by Knights of Columbus

All camping gear is transported by support vehicles which are always ready to assist. All you need to do is get yourself and/or your family physically and spiritually ready. Start walking and keep praying for the Holy Spirit to guide you on this journey.
