Camden Diocesan Lenten Pilgrimage, Week 6


This year the parishes of the Camden Diocese invite you to make your Lenten journey a true pilgrimage by participating in the many Masses and spiritual exercises being offered. On each day of Lent parishes are designated as “stations” of prayer. The parishes extend an invitation to the faithful throughout the diocese to make a visit and participate in scheduled activities. Your participation may take several forms: actual (physically visit the parish), virtual (visit the parish’s website), and/or spiritual (pray for the priests and parishioners of a given parish). No matter how you participate, the hope is that by uniting in prayer and works of charity Catholics in South Jersey will be renewed in spirit and become more faithful disciples of the Lord Jesus.
