The Catholic Parishes of St. Joseph Cathedral and Holy Cross are organizing a pilgrimage to the Basilica and Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation in Carey, Ohio.  The pilgrimage will leave via chartered motor coach on Saturday October 18, 2014 at 8:00 AM from St. Joseph Cathedral and 8:15 AM from Holy Cross.  The Basilica and Shrine are open at any time day or night.

Since the early days of Christianity, Mary, the blessed virgin, has been a source of solace for burdened Christians. Although she is known and venerated by many titles, devotion to Mary under the title of Our Lady of Consolation dates back to the second century, making it one of her earliest titles of honor.

Come Join us in our pilgrimage to a nationally recognized shrine and participate in the community of our cathedral parish!  If you would like to participate, please download the form, print it out and leave the completed form in the church offertory.  The fee for the pilgrimage is just $20 and all forms must be received in either the St Joseph Cathedral parish office or the Holy Cross parish office by October 4, 2014.  We look forward to sharing the experience with you!
