A National Eucharistic Pilgrimage will pass through De Pere this summer, stopping at St. Norbert College.

Four National Eucharistic Pilgrimages will take place during the summer in various parts of the country, each making stops at several dioceses where worshippers will be encouraged to assemble in reply to God’s invitation of renewal.

One of the pilgrimage routes, the Marian Route, began in Bemidji, Minn., on Friday, May 17.

It will stop at the National Shrine of St. Joseph on the St. Norbert College campus, on Saturday, June 15. The procession at the college will occur at 8 p.m., starting at the Mulva Library, 400 Third St. in De Pere. Attendees will then process to Old St. Joseph Church for Eucharistic Adoration until 9 p.m., and then proceed back to the Mulva Library.

In addition to the Marion Route, other routes on the pilgrimage will begin in Brownsville, Texas, New Haven, Conn., and San Francisco, Calif., the latter being the longest at 2,200 miles.

All four pilgrimages will end together in Indianapolis, Ind., on July 17, at the National Eucharistic Congress. Anyone is invited to join the pilgrimages for short distances or to participate in the stops along the way, but a small group of young adults in each pilgrimage, known as Perpetual Pilgrims, will complete it in its entirety.

The National Eucharistic Congress, the first in 83 years, will begin in Indianapolis, Ind., on July 17, in Lucas Oil Stadium, 500 S. Capitol Ave. The congress is a gathering of Catholics from around the country to engage in spiritual renewal and revival. It will last five days, and attendees have the option to attend for one or all five days, but space is limited. To register for the congress, visit
