"Capital Pilgrim Experience" Signature Event  

August 22nd, 2019, 2:00 - 3:00 PM 

Join Archbishop Terrence Prendergast, SJ, & Bishop Pierre-Olivier Tremblay, OMI.


More Than A Pilgrimage … It’s Making History … Don’t Miss It - Participate In It!

Both the Archbishop of Ottawa and the Rector of Canada’s National Marian Shrine will address pilgrims at the Rosary Bowl - the site of the historic 1947 Marian Congress where the Dominion of Canada was first consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the presence of Our Lady of the Cape, Canada’s National Madonna.

The Holy Rosary will be led by the Queenship of Mary Community and the Corpus Christi Catholic School Rosary Club
