Pallium Pilgrimage 2012
The Archdiocese of Baltimore and the Catholic Review will jointly sponsor a pilgrimage to Rome as Baltimore’s new Archbishop William E. Lori receives the pallium from Pope Benedict XVI.
The pallium, a circular band of wool worn around the neck, is given by the Holy Father to new metropolitan archbishops from around the world at a special Mass in the Vatican Basilica each year on June 29, the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul.
The pilgrimage will include prayer and worship in the places of the early Christian saints and martyrs. Pilgrims will depart for Rome June 25 and return to the U.S. July 2.
