The Immaculate Heart of Mary Pilgrim Statue visiting parishes throughout the diocese
"Where is our Blessed Mother?"
We get this question all the time now that your Immaculate Heart of Mary Pilgrim Statue is on her way, visiting all of the parishes in the Diocese! Check the schedule below to find out when she's going to be in your parish.
You don't see your parish listed? Not to worry…she will be traveling through June of 2017, and she has enough time to spend one week in each parish. She's planning to visit many of the schools, too, so keep coming back here to see where she'll be. We'll update the schedule regularly.
If you have questions or would like more information, please call Sr. Mary Brigid at (740)317-5678, email her at email@example.com (besides leading the Development Office, she is also our Blessed Mother's chauffeur!)

Please join us in praying our Novena in Preparation for the Year of Reconsecration. We will pray this as a diocese together from May 26-June 3, and repeatedly throughout the entire Year of Reconsecration. Please return here often to watch for our Blessed Mother's pilgrimage route, as she will be visiting EVERY parish in the Diocese this year! We will pray a novena of preparation in each parish as you await her arrival. AVE MARIA!
