2021 Liturgical Year

Pilgrimage Calendar

This page is dedicated to all the pilgrimages people pledge to make with MCP in the 2021 Liturgical Year, which began with the First Sunday of Advent on November 29th, 2020. We will keep it updated with the pilgrimages MCP hosts as well as with the pilgrimages MCP pilgrims make on their own while using MCP resources. If you see a pilgrimage about which you want to learn more, please reach out to Will F. Peterson at will@moderncatholicpilgrim.com.

At any time, you may register a pilgrimage you are making with us so that we can do whatever you need to help you make the most of your journey and can share it with the wider community.
