A Pilgrimage of Mercy in Philadelphia

Wednesday, April 20, 2016


A group of over 30 pilgrims, composed of Assumption Sisters and Friends of the Assumption went on a Pilgrimage of Mercy last April 16th.  Elliot and Meaghan, our two Assumption Mission Associates (AMAs), came all the way from Worcester, MA to join them!  The group visited four shrines in the city:  St. Rita of Cascia, Miraculous Medal, St. John Neumann, and St. Katherine Drexel.  At each sacred place they prayed with word, song and writings of these saints and Pope Francis.  This video gives an idea of the beautiful experience that the pilgrimage was.  Let the songs of mercy lift your spirit..."Merciful like the Father!"
