Catholic Extension Invites You to Take a Digital Pilgrimage to Rome
From November 15 through 21, Catholic Extension – a national fundraising organization that builds churches and the church in America’s home missions – is embarking on a Jubilee Year of Mercy Pilgrimage to Rome. Pilgrims will be traveling to the Eternal City to witness two historic events. The first is the papal consistory for the elevation of new cardinals on Nov. 19, where Catholic Extension’s chancellor, Archbishop Blase Cupich, will be made a cardinal. And the second is the conclusion of the Jubilee Year of Mercy with the closing of the Holy Door of St. Peter’s Basilica on Nov. 20.
Catholic Extension is inviting those who cannot join the pilgrimage in person to follow along on a digital journey to Rome and Assisi. Share in photos, videos, interviews and stories from the consistory, various sites around Rome and the closing of the Holy Door of St. Peter’s Basilica to mark the conclusion of the Jubilee Year of Mercy. Digital pilgrims can sign up to receive emails for all of the happenings at www.catholicextension.org/digitalpilgrimage.
