For Immediate Release From Catholic Archdiocese of Washington, DC!

WHERE: Mass at The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception
Walk With Jesus Procession through neighborhoods immediately following.

HOW: https://adw.org/living-the-faith/evangeliz...



We are calling for volunteers to help host the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage https://adw.org/living-the-faith/evangeliz... as it stops in Washington DC. Our theme is Walk with Jesus: To Jesus Through Mary. The pilgrimage consists of a Mass on Saturday, June 8, 2024, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, followed by a Eucharistic Procession through the surrounding Brookland neighborhood. At the same time, a stationary pilgrimage for those with limited mobility will also happen at the St. John Paul II National Shrine. Additional details of the schedule are below.

We need Altar Servers, Catholic Scouting Troops, and Ministers of Hospitality.

Altar Servers (boys and girls) are needed for the Procession. Altar servers must bring their own server vesture, either an alb and cincture or cassock and surplice. The Basilica cannot provide these items for servers on that day. Altar servers will walk in the procession and some will carry candles, incense, and the crucifix.

Catholic Scouting Troops (boys and girls) are needed for the walking Procession. Scouts will wear their uniforms as they help lead the procession, walking behind the altar servers. They will lead the participants and may assist in other ways as needed.

Ministers of Hospitality are needed to assist at Mass (Basilica) and with the two Processions (the walking procession and the stationary pilgrimage at the Pope John Paul II Shrine). Ministers of Hospitality will greet people, distribute handouts, help guide the pilgrims, and support with other duties as needed.
