After a long absence due to the pandemic, the Pastoral Bulletin is once again including information on parish pilgrimages.  If your parish is offering a pilgrimage within the coming months, we invite you to share this information with the Pastoral Bulletin:  This allows readers to view opportunities to participate in an upcoming pilgrimage. 

Please include contact information, deadline for reservations and possible link to a website with more information on the pilgrimage.  We will publish the information for as long as needed.
