Our Event

Experience Lent fully this year!

Are you tired of giving up sweets and coffee for Lent?  

Are you ready to embark on a different Lenten practice?

Are you ready to leave your comfort zone for a day and challenge yourself 

physically, spiritually and personally?

We invite you to join us on a 10-mile pilgrimage

of prayer through meditating upon the scenes of our Lord’s sufferings and death.

Date:                    Sunday, March 22, 2020

Registration:        8:00 AM - 9:30 AM

The walking Pilgrimage will begin at the Archdiocesan Shrine of St. John Paul II (St. Theresa of the Child Jesus Parish) 131 E. Edgar Rd., Linden, NJ and conclude at the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus Cathedral 89 Ridge St., Newark, NJ with the Holy Eucharist celebrated by Very Reverend Bishop Manuel Cruz, Pastor of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.



Transportation to the Shrine of St. John Paul II is the responsibility of the participants.




For those who might be interested, buses are being organized to leave from several locations, either from Clifton and/or Garfield and take the pilgrims to Linden, then pick them up at the Cathedral and bring them back to the location from which they left. More details on Transportation page.
