Annual Pilgrimage for the Sea Services
October 3 @ 3:30 pm EDT
The National Shrine of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton in Emmitsburg, Maryland, is holding its Annual Pilgrimage for the Sea Services on Sunday, October 3 at 3:30 p.m.
As the Patroness of the Sea Services, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton has strong connections to those who spend their lives at sea and those devoted to public health. People from across the country will come together for a special Mass where members of the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines and Public Health Services join family and friends in prayer to thank Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton for her protection and ask for her continued intercession.
This year, the National Shrine of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton welcomes Bishop Neal J. Buckon, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Military Services, as the main celebrant of the Sea Services Pilgrimage Mass.
The Mass will be shown live on EWTN and live-streamed on www.ewtn.com for those who cannot join in person. Free take-home dinners will be available for those who attend.
