On October 11, our Eighth Grade students made the Holy Year
Pilgrimage to the National Shrine of Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. The Pilgrimage was made possible through the collaboration
of St. Columba Parish, and was led by Fr. Michael with the Assistance of Sr.
Kathleen, Mrs. Forlenza and Mrs. Galletti.
The students’ day began with a talk on Divine Mercy followed
by walking through the Holy Doors. The
students then prayed at the stunning life-size outdoor Stations of the
Cross. A picnic lunch on the peaceful
grounds and a visit to the gift shop followed.
After lunch, the students participated in Adoration of the Blessed
Sacrament and were able to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Afterwards, the students prayed the Rosary,
celebrated the Eucharist, and prayed the Divine Mercy Novena and Chaplet. The pilgrimage ended with a Benediction.
