Saint Joseph Cathedral leading October 6 Reparation Pilgrimage
to the National Shrine and Basilica of Our Lady of Consolation in nearby Carey, Ohio

Given the sexual misconduct scandals in certain corners of the Church, the annual Cathedral pilgrimage to Our Lady of Consolation Shrine is focused this year on one of reparation, with a special Rosary and Mass of Reparation, along with the other devotions provided the Franciscan Friars at the Shrine.

To assist the Franciscan Friars in preparing for this special pilgrimage an attendance count is requested, thus persons interested in participating in this reparation pilgrimage are requested to contact the Cathedral parish office by Monday, October 1, by calling (614) 224-1295, or e-mail cathedral@saintjosephcathedral.org.
