Confirmation Pilgrimage will be October 9
The Confirmation Pilgrimage will be October 9 from 8:00 AM to 2:45 PM. The purpose of the pilgrimage is to share the history, art and architecture, heritage and faith of the Catholic church in Chicago. We'll go to the Cathedral, the shrine of a saint and places important to the development of the city and the people who have made up our community of faith.
And, it is fun, too. (I promise.)
Many public schools are off that day, as it is Yom Kippur. If your candidate's school is in session, I'll be glad to communicate with the principal. Over 25 years of leading this event, I've never had a principal say 'no' because it is such an enriching experience.
As we will be visiting churches, appropriate clothing is expected. No shorts, no low cut tops, no ripped jeans, no 'slogan' t-shirts.
