Marian Pilgrimage – Photo Gallery

By the initiative of Bishop Crosby, on Wednesday, October 18th, students from the University of Guelph, McMaster University, Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo, embarked upon a Marian Pilgrimage to the Basilica of Our Lady Immaculate in Guelph. Organized by the university chaplaincies from the Newman Centre Guelph, the Saint John Paul II Student Centre, and Canadian Martyrs Parish, pilgrims arrived by bus, car and foot to crown the statue of Mary at street level. After dinner provided by the Catholic Women’s League in the parish hall, we went into the church to listen to Sr. Teresa Joseph, SOLI, give a testimonial on her love for Mary. After praying the Rosary, we went down into the Basilica Catacombs for The Summit: Mass and Adoration with contemporary music ministry provided by The Divine Praises, a worship band composed of Guelph students and local talent. Fr. Mark Morley, Newman Centre chaplain, presided at the Mass while Fr. Michael King, Hamilton Diocese Vocations Director, gave the homily. Following Adoration, students enjoyed a social held in the hall before heading home. During the academic year, the Newman Centre will continue to reach out to young adults in the Guelph area by hosting The Summit in the Basilica Catacombs on the third Wednesday of the month (except February, when it will be the fourth Wednesday due to Reading Week). The Newman Centre Guelph would like to thank the Ex Corde Foundation for its generous support of this new venture into young adult ministry.
